A gorgeous variety with large roundish, purple and orange tinged dark green leaves. Leaves have a strong perfume, whose scent is often used in oils and vinegars but often too strongly perfumed to be used in baking or general cooking. Freshly picked stems can be added to running bath water for an aromatic soak. Purple flowers produced in summer are a magnet for pollinating insects.

For a moist, fertile soil in partial shade. CARE: Will spread unendingly unless confined.

Height: 12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm                      

Spread: 12 - 18+ inches / 30 - 45+cm
