This lovely, semi-woody plant can be grown as either an annual or a perennial, being in flower from May to July, and the fragrant pink or white flowers which give a good summer display are most attractive to bees and butterflies.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
