I found this FRAGRANT plant flowering its heart out beside the road in the Garonne region of France. The seeds have come true and we now have a bit of my French hiking holiday in Richmond! Forms a good clump fast and won't need any fussing.Use a spade each spring and/or fall to limit the root spread.
