  • Aspect: Sun
  • Soil: Any/alkaline
  • Flower colour: Orange

This is a definitely a herb for a sunny spot, it doesn't grow as successfully if it has too much shade. It looks especially good in a border, where its sometimes-straggly stems receive some support from other shrubs. It can be grown in a pot, but may need something to help it stay upright when it comes into flower.
