LOVE THIS PLANT ! We freeze every winter, and this plant went dorment. I was pleasantly surprised to see it come back in Spring. I have one in full sun (hot summer) and one that gets only morning sun, the full sun is much happier. Be sure to place the plant where you can enjoy the wonderful exotic tea fragrance ! Let almost dry between waterings, the drench it.
