A lot of people grow it between stepping stones, it doesn’t mind being walked on. But it is difficult to grow because of its shallow root system, and doesn’t like extreme hot sun or being dry or being soggy. It has very small, fine, bright green leaves, and blossoms with miniature purple flowers.
It is a perennial, and grows naturally in Corsica, Sardinia and in Italy. It has become naturalized in a few places in Britain.
The leaves can be used raw or in cooking, or in tea. They have a strong menthol aroma.
