Highly aromatic and easy to grow!  Upright, mounded perennial with semi-creeping,  woody stems and tiny, pointed grey-green leaves that are highly aromatic, reaching their peak scent just before plants flower.  Leaves frequently used fresh or dried as a culinary seasoning.  Whorls of tiny, tubular, light pink to lilac flowers appear on stem tips in late spring to early summer.  Cut back plants to limit woody growth or stimulate new growth.  Tolerates drought and shallow-rocky soil.  Attracts bees and butterflies.
