Fragrant and quick-spreading
Have you grown Corsican mint yet? It’s one of the smallest in the family, with a prostrate, ground-hugging habit and tiny leaves topped by even smaller blooms in midsummer. For filling space and exuding a fresh, cheery peppermint scent from spring ’til frost, there’s simply nothing better.
This ornamental mint is perfect for filling baskets, flowerpots, and sunny garden patches with strong scent and rich color that lasts all season. It’s easy to grow because the seeds are packed into pellets, with each pellet producing several seedlings. Now you don’t have to worry about sowing multiple seeds, thinning young plants, and all that. Just stick one pellet in a 4-inch pot, and before you know it, you’ll have bright green shoots spilling over the sides and more peppermint scent than the day before Christmas.
Mini Ornamental Mint reaches just 2 to 4 inches high but quickly spreads up to a foot wide. It will spill over the sides of containers, forming attractive trailing stems that need no rooting at their tips to look great all season. Tiny mauve flowers will appear in midsummer, but you may miss them altogether—this annual is all about the perfect foliage.
Give this mint full sunshine in all but the warmer climates, where it appreciates dappled shade or morning sun and afternoon shade. Keep it watered for best growth. Then sit back to enjoy one of the easiest and most beautiful (in color and fragrance) plants of your garden.
