Aztec Sweet Herb (Lippia dulcis)

Aztec Sweet Herb – Lippia dulcis

Aztec Sweet Herb – Lippia dulcis is a quick growing herb for Summer display with attractive, aromatic foliage and pretty little white flowers. The spreading growth habit gives excellent ground cover but will also trail rather nicely in hanging baskets and patio containers. Intensely sweet leaves also contain camphor but it can be used sparingly in drinks, fruit salads etc. Medicinally once used in South America for the treatment of various chest infections such as Bronchitis. Prefers a sunny position but will require winter protection. Just uproot and pot up a small section to over winter in a frost free place and off it will grow again in the following Spring.
