the good thing with this one is if you take some leaves and dry them, then crush and put into a bowl it makes great potpurri.

That is great, I did nt realise until you said that it was scented I seen it on ebay for sale, but when I looked it up how big it grew I did nt bother.

Thats a good idea but I have to rely on my grand kids to cut back my plants

i see ,yes they grow quite quick as well so would need regular cutting back.
