Thanks Jacque and Bjs. It's been in flower for over a month Amy and yes it spreads, it was originally a piece from Mum's plant, she has it under a Camelia and Azalia in the shade. Mine is in full sun and seems quite happy, it's a herb and can be dried to keep away moths and also used as a tea for a stimulating drink! In my herb book it says it has a strong scent of new mown hay...so I'm off to have a sniff and see...Lol!

Ideal place for it Pp.....well it smells like fresh peas....mmm..... Yes Amy do us good..Lol says it's good for the liver...do you remember the saying "liverish" ha..ha if someone was in a bad mood...Lol! Andrews Liver Salts...you can still buy them and Epsom salts in that kidney shaped tin....there used to be all these remedies years ago.....now everyone is "stressed" and have to have retail therapy which makes them more "liverish" than ever when the credit card bills come in.............:o(
