Balm of Gilead (Cedronella canariensis), potted plant, organic


Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zone 9 to 12

Herbaceous perennial native to N. Africa and Canary Islands.  The leaves are uncharacteristic to the lamiaceae–compound and shiny, on sweeping stems.  The plants can be quite large and densely branched, rising up 2 to 3 feet and similarly wide.  Does well in pots, though.  Multiple flowering racemes.  The entire plant emits a citrus/camphor odor that is refreshing. I was immediately entranced by this plant when first I saw it, managed to swipe a few seeds, grew them out, and continue to be entranced by Cedronella in all its various aspects.   The plant thrives in average, mesic to moist soil,  in full sun or part shade.  Must be put in a pot and brought indoors to survive harsh winters.  Space plants 2 feet apart.
