Description

Creeping Mint- Mentha requienii

Creeping Mint, also known as Corsican Mint, is a lovely, rooted green ground cover plant that not only has looks, but it is useful and smells fantastic, too. Creeping mint is a real miniature plant, maturing at a maximum height of one inch. As it grows, each plant spreads to about 12 inches, eventually creating a lush, green mat that is a landscaper's dream. Its tiny round leaves are no more significant than 1/8 inch in diameter, and it's little lilac-colored flowers are so small that they are often missed at first glance. The Creeping Mint blooms from June to August in most areas.

In gardening, Creeping Mint's primary use is as a ground cover.

It is especially favored for planting around stepping stones; as the leaves are bruised from being walked on, they release a minty aroma. They are popular in rock gardens and herb gardens. In a vegetable garden, creeping mint is an insect-repelling companion to cabbages, cauliflower, and broccoli.

Creeping Mint does well outside, especially in fertile, moist, light and well-drained, but not dry, soil. It is a low-maintenance plant that prefers full sun to partial shade. It is not a fast growing plant but does self-propagate via runners. Mint does best in hardiness zones 6 through 9 but can be grown as an annual above zone 6.

Easily grown indoors, creeping mint can be used in many useful ways around the house.

Historically it has been used as an antiseptic, a fever reducer, and as a gas relief. It has been a favorite insect and rodent repellent thanks to its scent. Cooks use creeping mint leaves in tea, salads, and even ice cream. It is a common flavoring in baked goods and gives creme de menthe liquor its flavor. Mint makes an excellent garnish, too.
