Comments: Can tolerate some dry soil conditions, but prefers moist ones. The leaves have a slight fragrance and can color in the autumn. During hot weather flowering is reduced and the leaves begin to dry. A shearing at this time will revitalize the plants and result in better flowering as the days cool.
