An unusual and desirable perennial. A Himalayan native, the beautiful glossy, thistle-like leaves give off a citrus scent when you brush against them. Tall whorled clusters of waxy white-pink flowers rise above the foliage in late spring and early summer. Fertilised flowers turn deeper shades to indicate to the bees and other pollinators they have been fertilised. Evergreen in mild winters, dislikes soggy feet in winter months. Plant on fertile, well drained soil that won’t dry out to much in summer. An excellent companion for ornamental grasses and Dierama.
