Lovely & useful

This is a beautiful, wonderful plant. It is very easy to grow, is perennial (I'm zone 4) and self-seeds readily. Not as invasive as lemon balm, but be prepared to weed little seedlings every year. Not only is it attractive to beneficial insects and butterflies, but makes a lovely tea. My kids eat the leaves right off the plant. :)

Wonderful flowers for bees!

I started these last year from seed - the plant flowered the first year! The bees loved them!
