From mis-summer o early fall, the bush produces large terminal panicles of tiny, four petaled, white, or pale lilac flowers. the leaves are best used fresh and young. they are a common ingredient in many herbal teas and can be used to give a lemon flavour to fruit salads, desserts and drinks. Plant in full sun, in fertile, well-drained soils. Perfect for beds and borders, wall side gardens, city and cottage gardens, mediterreanean and herb gardens. Can also be planted in containers (and over-wintered indoors), and placed on a sunny patio or deck where the scent will deter mosquitoes.
