£0.79

Prefers a warm sunny sheltered position and a well-drained soil. Succeeds in most soils.

Bees & butterflies love this plant.

Although given a hardiness rating of 9 (which means that a plant is not very frost-tolerant), this species is thriving in a sunny bed at Kew Botanical Gardens and so should be hardy to at least zone 7. Another report says that it withstands temperatures down to about -40°c when dormant. Yet another report says that it should succeed outdoors in the milder and drier counties, but that it is not very long-lived.

Edible uses

The highly aromatic young leaves are used as a flavouring in salads and cooked foods. The young leaves are used to make a herbal tea.
