Grown on a
This is a useful and attractive plant with pretty grey-green foliage and plentiful mauveblue flowers through summer. The whole plant is intensely aromatic and is generally
avoided by cats and dogs. It prefers a sunny site, tolerating quite dry conditions, and
this helps maintain a noticeable release of the plant’s essential oils. Do not over water.
It makes a colourful addition to the front of the border, or can be planted in containers
which may be moved around the garden to help deter unwanted visitors.
