Thankyou,have a white one of these too, really easy one to propogate spreads by rhizomes, so just break a bit off and stick it in a pot and it roots,easy, lovely leaf colour in autumn too :-)

Oooh lovely Dawn, will be interesting to see if you get any different ones to me, they were sent to me on a swapshop and the lady sent me several packets:-)

I was amazed yesterday how many bees were on it Iagojames, I have a white one too, saw on Chelsea that it'll grow in full shade too so may try some under my trees this year where not much else'll grow, it certainly smells good enough to eat with those scented leaves, don't think I'll try it though:-)
Welcome to GOY by the way:-)
