Description

  • Interesting culinary herb
  • Pretty trailing herb for containers
  • Sweet leaves

The leaves of this little herb contain intensely sweet compounds but can leave an aftertaste which some people dislike. The small white flowers protrude above the leaves and as a trailing plant it looks especially attractive in hanging baskets over the summer.
