A hardy native shrub with fragrant silvery leaves growing up to 2m tall and 2m wide. In summer and autumn it produces small creamy flowers.

This plant has edible foliage which can be used dried or fresh in dishes both sweet and savoury. Its leaves are actually a similar flavour to rosemary, grassy and warm. The flowers of the plant are also edible and can be used as a garnish in salads or on cakes and pastries. It also has use as an insect repellent, crushing it and rubbing it on your skin will repel some bugs (spot test first to test for allergic reactions).

It should be grown in full sun and can be grown in the poorest of sandy soils. It is drought and salt tolerant but does need protection from cold and frost.
