The first year I grew this plant, I knew it would be gracing my garden forever. Easy to start from seed, it will self sow in the garden, though it won’t become a weedy annoyance. In some areas it can be a perennial. Much loved by bees and butterflies, this purple, anise scented herb will become a favorite. It makes a wonderful tea, which is soothing to the stomach. Open Pollinated.
