    • The smell is amazing! Has stayed a healthy green, filling a 20" diameter pot in about 45 days.

    • So easy and rewarding! I am working on my green thumb and this plant has thrived this year! It smells so great and works well in baskets and pots. I plan to bring my potted one's inside and see how long I can keep them going for. I will definitely be filling all of my baskets on our deck railing with this next year. It's beautiful and we get so many compliments! I also love how the foliage is fatty similar to a succulents. My little outdoor garden is thriving!

    • Love, love, love this plant. Easy to grow, grows quickly and when a leaf falls off, put it in dirt and another plant grows! Plus, we love just rubbing the leaves to enjoy the fabulous smell. Brought them in the house for winter, so far, so good!

    • Lovely plant that is easy to grow. We have named it the 'pet-me-plant' because it is so aromatic. Can't help but brush the leaves when you walk past this beauty. Will bush out if you pinch the leaves periodically. I gave cuttings to everyone at work; it propagates easily also. Need to find another one since it doesn't enjoy cold winters.

    • I love this plant. I frequently go to them just to smell the fragrance. They have thrived on a table in front of a west window. Easy care.
