Review:

This anise/tarragon scented plant is easy to grow in the hot, dry summers of the San Joaquin Valley. It seems to die back after the winter frost, but comes back quickly with new growth in the spring. My original plant is now 4 years old: I cut it back to about 4 inches in November now, and in April I have new foot long growth, double in bushiness to the previous year. It's about 2 feet tall by late summer, and there are still plenty of blooms for El Dia Day Los Muertos in the fall. Pest free, amazing scent, a sprig on my collar seems to be a decent mosquito repellent, too! Fish, poultry, tea, vegetable broth.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
