Description: A short-lived bushy perennial to 50cm high and is often grown as an annual culinary herb. The dark green leaves are aromatic with a citrus scent; spikes of small whitish flowers appear in late summer and early autumn.
Care: Grow in a light, well-drained, fertile soil in a sheltered position in full sun. May be grown as a short-lived sub-shrub in mild areas or over-wintered under glass. Propagate by softwood cuttings. Pinch out flowerheads as they appear to ensure continued leaf growth. Cut back after flowering.
