This highly fragrant mint can be used in cooking, salads and salad dressings.
It makes a lovely peppery-flavoured tea.
It has been used in the manufacture of Creme de Menthe for hundreds of years.
It is ideal for planting as a lawn but avoid heavily trafficked areas (perhaps plant the mint around pavers in such areas). Walking barefoot over a Corsican Mint lawn is a real treat.
This mint likes a part shade position in well draining soil. It can handle full sun but may struggle during the hot Perth summers.
It enjoys regular watering (doesn’t like getting too wet) and should grow to about 5cm high by 90cm wide.
