What are the pros? winter & drought tolerant
What are the cons? spreads easily, hard to kill
On its 4th year! I transplanted seedlings outside on year one and they survived even tho I read they wouldn't. Now comes back year after year and even attracts hummingbirds!! It didnt flower until its 2nd year tho. Smells really sweet when dying in the fall like syrup. It spreads really easily so could be considered a pest plant. I live really far up north in the U.S. and it survived our record breaking -40 degree winter the second year thus extremely winter hardy. You can cut it down in the fall when its dying to an inch off the ground if you dont want all that dead foilage around and by next spring it'll be 3ft tall again by the end of May. It's drought tolerant too. I neglected it on the 3rd year when we had a drought and didn't water it at all in the 100 degree heat that summer and along with the yarrow herb, grew very big as usual like nothing effected them. So this herb is extremely easy to plant, grows really big, extremely cold/winter hardy, & heat/drought tolerant.
