The small blooms are delicate and beautiful up close and are a draw for bees and small butterflies. The foliage is evergreen and mint-scented with a hint of spiciness, giving it the alternate name Georgia Basil. It likes sandy, well-drained soil and is good with full to partial sun. Blooms in spring and fall and grows 1 to 2 feet tall. Makes a great low-border shrub.
