By far the smallest of Mints, this charming plant forms a flat carpet of tiny bright-green leaves with an intense creme-de-menthe fragrance.
Corsican Mint is able to be used in a variety of culinary pursuits, including salad preparation and cooked dishes. It is also ideal in drinks, such as refreshing teas, juices, chocolate drinks and flavoured shakes as well as simply adding to cold water.
Corsican Mint is reputed to be an ideal companion plant for the brassica group of vegetables. The strong minty aroma repels the insects and protects the intended food crop from attack. The mint may also improve the flavour of the vegetables in some cases.
Minute mauve flowers appear in midsummer. Perfect for planting between paving stones in a moist, part-shaded area. Don't allow plant to go dry for long periods. Stepping on the plant will release the pleasant scent. Where plants are not winter hardy this is still worthwhile growing as an annual, and it will often self-seed for several years. Nice also as a carpeting plant to cover the soil in pots beneath taller-growing specimens. Easily increased by ripping apart into smaller pieces.
