Delightful upright racemes of white and lavender.
The aroma is patchouli-esque but really only develops upon distillation and aging.
Tropical (tender, protect from frost) perennial native to Asia.
May be grown in the temperate zone in pots, brought indoors for the winter. Relatively straightforward to grow in pots indoors.
Plant prefers full to part shade, moist, rich soils, humidity. The plant thrives under good care but fades fast with neglect--it needs watering almost daily, has zero tolerance for frost and will sunburn if not protected by shade.
Barely cover seed and sow on surface, keep evenly moist, warm and in the light until germination, which takes at least 3 weeks.
Do not squeeze seeds as they crush easily!
