Ours was the first offering in the US of this Chinese import, via the US Botanical Garden. The slowly spreading, narrow tufts of evergreen foliage appear identical to A. gramineus, except for the delightful fragrance of licorice in the crushed foliage and roots... a delight and a must for herbies and licorice addicts, as well as a durable groundcover for moist sites!
