Meehan's Mint Characteristics
Meehan's Mint does not give off a mint fragrance even though the leaves resemble the herb. It survives best in partial shade but will survive in direct sunlight if it is watered.
It is a creeping ground cover the spreads via runners, or arms that reach out and root when they touch soil. It grows well in western Pennsylvania as it is a native plant, frequently growing in forests and hillsides. This low growing ground cover forms a thick carpet and the flowers are relatively large compared to the rest of the plant. It creates a beautiful border to finish off a garden.
Meehan's Mint does not have frequent disease issues though slugs may make their home on it. Deer will not be attracted to this plant.
