“A staggering display of apricot spikes... erupting like flames,” is how the breeder describes it. Indeed, this is one very impressive herb from England, excellent for flower beds, borders and containers. It is compact, reaching a height of only 45cm/18”, and very quick growing, flowering in its first year from June on. It deservedly won the Fleuroselect Quality Award as an ornamental, but it is also a fine aromatic herb suitable for tea and beverages.
