A very tough, spreading ground cover for moist, shady positions.
Pennyroyal prefers a shady position in constantly moist soil.
Pennyroyal was a popular herb in the middle ages but is not widely used now due its strong flavour and negative side affects with many people. It is, however an excellent insecticide and companion plant for the home and garden, controlling a wide range crawling, flying and sucking insects. Combine half a cup of Pennyroyal with one cup of vegetable oil, bottle and store for a day in a warm spot. Spray on ant trails to clear away ants or apply in and around the dog kennel or on the collar to repel fleas. Do not consume.
