Mentha requienii Corsican Mint



Mentha requienii is a fine, mat forming, perennial ground cover that features tight green, aromatic foliage and tiny lavender flowers in summer. Also known as Corsican Mint, it spreads by fine thread-like stems and stays very flat to the ground. Its fragrance when crushed or bruised is exceptional!

Mentha requienii prefers partial shade to sun and rich, light, moist, well-drained soil. It is best in partial shade in warmer zones. It resents heat and humidity and does not tolerate dry soils, but will self-sow in favorable conditions. Corsican Mint tolerates moderate foot traffic and works well between stepping stones. Space on 6" centers.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
