This herb is has a pleasant smell which is relaxing and therefore I placed it around the jacuzzi. Here it is planted next to a Spirea which is kept small by prunung. The leaves and flowering stems are strongly antiseptic.It also has a beneficial effect upon the digestive and respiratory systems and has been used in Mediterranean cooking for hundreds of years. It flowers from late June onwards and gives a very good display of flowers.
