This really is a lovely little plant that is perfect for ground cover.

When crushed the foliage releases an extremely strong scent of peppermint; plant this so it overflows onto a path and when crushed underfoot the scent is amazing. Of course, you could plant a whole lawn of this, should you wish.

Semi-evergreen in habit, with small pale green leaves; atop this, pale lavender-blue flowers appear sporadically over the summer months. Can reach a height of approximately 9" (23 cm) but can be kept trimmed and/or walked on or for ground cover.

This is also an excellent plant for areas where ants are troublesome as they hate the scent.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
