Mints planted together naturally hybrid so it is best planted away from other mints. Grow in full sun or partial shade. It is adaptable to many light conditions but does not thrive in full shade. The soil must be moist. It can survive periods of drought but is best watered every few days to keep the soil moist. (Ref: PFAF - see link).

Comments Warnings : Of all the mints this is a natural abortifacient. It has been used to control insects and for companion planting. It has had many traditional medicinal uses but it is not used today. The essential (distilled) oil contains pulegone which is extremely toxic in large doses. Best avoided by everyone. Not for children or pregnant or lactating women.
