Yes... I love this plant it is so aromatic. Why it seems to attract these blue bottles is another thing. There are also wasps, as well as bee's, and hoverflies. Maybe these insects are so taken by this plants fragrance too.

Well Bonkersbon... The fragrance is like a fresh exhilarating eucalyptus, and warm mediterranean pine, with just a hint of an Egyptian mysterious spice. Thank you Sixpence.

That sounds wonderful must look out for it . So much nicer than the hedge woundwort that grows in our garden despite the aroma the bees love it ..

Yes, and the Bees love this one too, and it is really attractive to the hoverflies.
