Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow spring in a greenhouse[200]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Division in spring[200].
Requires a perfectly drained gritty humus-rich soil, preferably slightly alkaline, in full sun[200]. Once established, this is a very drought-tolerant plant, it grows well in a hot dry position[200]. This species is not hardy in the colder areas of the country. It tolerates temperatures down to between -5 and -10¡c but is intolerant of winter cold if this is accompanied by wet conditions[200]. The leaves and flowering tops are sold for tea in local markets[46].
S. Europe – E. Mediterranean in Crete.
