Excellent seed germination 2007. Plants seem variable, some bushy some tall, all are silvery like the photo and slow to spread. Remained evergreen in my UK garden. Flowers are fragrant however the leaves are not very fragrant in my garden but will try some dried as the aroma seems to be only released through intense crushing. Might be very strong smelling in a full sun position rather than cool coastal England weather.
