One of Mother Nature’s wonders! Medicinal and well known as a wildflower herb. Will add height and a wonderful aroma to any border with its fabulous architectural stature.

All parts of the plant, except the flowers, are mildly toxic. As always never ingest any herb for medicinal reasons without first consulting an expert.
