Crushed Pennyroyal leaves and foliage havea very strong spearmint fragrance. This member of the mint dies to the ground in winter and regrows from rhizomes in spring. It is adapted to a wide variety of soils and temperature conditions. This is a prostrate growing perennial that is a useful selection as a ground cover in small spaces where detail is important. The foliage is strongly aromatic with a spearmint flavor.
