Corsican Mint
I am using groundcover Corsican Mint on my fairy garden. You can also plant corsican mint to your garden to have nice smell, they bloom tiny lavender flowers during summer.

There are several types of mint (including sweet mint, spearmint, peppermint, and chocolate mint) are fast-growing, spreading plants. If you do not want to invade the garden with mint, plant them in a large flowers pots.
