This is the miniature of all mints, with ¼ – ½ cm heart- shaped leaves that sit thick like moss on the ground. This prostrate, mat-like habit makes it ideal to grow between paving stones.
Require open soil with summer moisture. It is shallow rooted. The dainty, lush green leaves can spoil if the roots dry out. Corsican mint does not go rampant under the soil like other mints.
Often used in liqueurs, the tiny leaves have a very rich aroma and flavour of peppermint, which lifts the spirit and gives energy to the body.
