Evergreen perennial with fragrant gray-green leaves and a shrubby growth habit. We grew this early on in our Pennsylvania garden (before I started this website), lost it (probably to a cold and wet winter), and somehow never returned to growing it until picking up a plant for our Houston garden. We are now at the opposite end of its hardiness zone range, where heat is more of a concern than cold – although wet winters may be problematic regardless.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
