This listing is for 1 Rooted Pennyroyal Herb Plant (Mentha pulegium). Pennyroyal smells amazing. This member of the mint family has a minty-yet deeply complex smell to it. We love having it around just to carry a piece around in our pockets, smelling it from time to time.
Mentha pulegium, is native to Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. It is easy to grow. It prefers full sun to part shade and moderate to low water. (We have seen it naturalize in California and grow with no irrigation at all) It is a low growing plant 4-6 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Attractive lavender flowers in summer attract bees and butterflies. Good as a ground cover or trailing attractively in hanging baskets. Looks and smells great in between stepping stones. USDA zones 6-9.
Pennyroyal has been used as a pest repellent and insecticide to keep fleas and mosquito away from pets and humans. We can not take any responsibility for effects from the use of this plant medicinally, as there are contraindications. It should not be handled by pregnant women.
