detailed seed-starting info below

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...
