Corsican mint is tiny with little round leaves, beautiful, grows well in shady areas and spreads out very nicely. It doesn't dominate and go crazy like regular mint. Plus, when you step on it, it smells like heaven and you can put it in a salad, or a cocktail for that matter. Mojitos anyone? In our former house, we used it to replace part of our lawn where grass just didn't make sense (too steep to mow). We had a huge area to cover, so we saved money by growing it from seed in our basement under fluorescent lights in 4" pots, divided the pots into plugs, planted and let the mint fill in the lawn. It was amazing! Surprisingly, the neighborhood cats did not take up permanent residence there, though we humans frequently rolled in it.
