Fantastically fragrant! This low-growing cute-as-a-button mint makes a lovely steppable groundcover for planting between pavers. Grows less than 6” high & spreads as far as you let it. The official mint of Creme De Menthe - it’s intoxicating smell is said to repel some pest insects, making it a useful addition to vegetable gardens. Needs good drainage to thrive - so it’s a great choice for rock gardens, sandy soil or containers.
