This is one of our favorite perennials, a herb that everyone tells me is not hardy...ours has only been planted for 6 years. In our area, it only reaches 24" and doesn't bloom, but does produce incredibly fragrant foliage on a wonderful bold textured clump... a great addition to the woodland garden and kitchen!
