A hardy perennial herb shrub with
feathery grey-green leaves.
Very aromatic leaves and ideal for a scented garden.
The leaves are used traditionally as a moth and insect repellent
(and they are very effective),
and in Pot Pourri where it is often combined with Lavender.
Likes a light soil in full sun.
# Ideal for tubs and containers.
It grows to 3-4ft tall and the woody stems
are best cut well back in the autumn to prevent
it getting straggley and getting to look untidy.
Many an old cottage has this herb growing,
and it's scent is reminiscent of 'Granny' to lots of people.
The name 'Lad's Love' comes from
its reputation of promoting beard growth!
