Woodland subshrub, may not be hardy in our garden in the long run. But so far so good - on my second attempt to grow them on from seed (the first ones didn't survive summer), I got flowers by late August of their second year. The foliage looks like that of garden rue, and is aromatic.

Our plants failed to return in spring a few years later. Not sure if it was cold or winter wet that did them in.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Peter Kohn||Feb 07, 2019||PLant in Sheffield Botanic Garden has been through several winters including 2017/18. Flowers deep into the autumn and looks good when much else has gone back. Our plants will have been raised from seed collected in the Himalayas (probably Nepal).|
