A tea drinker’s dream come true! This lovely herb produces seemingly endless white daisy-like flowers with a sweet appley scentfrom late Spring thru Summer. Bright-green lacy foliage forms a textural mound about 1’ high & wide with flowers waving overhead on tall, branching stems. Reseeds remarkably well– I planted it once & haven’t been without it since (thank goodness)! Performs beautifully in the ground, but also looks absolutely adorable cascading from a window box or container. The flowers can be used fresh or dried & are startlingly delicious when added to green tea with milk & honey. Attracts bees & other beneficial insects!
