These are on sale this month at Logee's. Nice plants, easy to grow, and the fragrance is delightful. I've had one for 5 years unidentified, finally found it and ordered another.

Likes a bright windowsill but cannot endure full sun outside - does well in a shaded spot.

Will pick up aphids from other plants when indoors but they are easily controlled with soap sprays. Prefer some humidity over the winter.
