Wonderful little thing that loves my neglectful nature, thank goodness!! Found as tiny tubestock plant at Bunnings September 2015, now in September 2016 it is a lovely knee high, quite wide bush, that seems to do best when I ignore it and let the rain keep it happy. 


Planted into the ground into a slightly aged layered bed (compost, coir soaked in fish and seaweed, cardboard, bit of manure) and mulched with sugarcane mulch. Slightly under the eaves on the north side of the house, a metre from the brick wall. Lots of sun, and a bit of protection from being drowned.


Never flowered though. Perhaps not old enough?

Planted: 2015

Height 0.6 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Summer

After Fruiting

When I Fertilise: Never

Pest Control: Pests don't touch it, and it is sitting in between two passionfruit vines planted at the same time, that have never had a pest problem ever. Quite the strong smell to it when touched, so natural deterrent, perhaps?

What does it taste like?
branny1 says... [270 days 4hrs ago]
Erm... well, sort of a bit like curry powder? I throw it chopped into the pan with the rest of my spices and herbs with a little oil and then cook whatever in it. Makes it taste as if I used a bit of curry powder. You can eat it raw, but I don't? You can use it much like rosemary- grows the same, too; likes dry mediterranean, at least in my yard. The taste is a bit hard to explain, but it really does smell and taste a bit like plain ol' curry powder.

Cheers for the firsthand info. I was looking into the health benefits and given that taste is fine, I think I will buy one.
