I started this plant from seed a few years back(very easy) and love it! It's just coming into full bloom now. It has a wonderful deep lavender colour and a pleasant herby sort of fragrance.
Will reseed and as of yet has not become a pest for me. If you don't want reseeding pinch of the blooms as they die.
