shrub, evergreen, scented/aromatic
dry soil, moist soil, sandy soil, coastal

Semi-prostrate habit, pale blue flowers.
Thrives in very well drained, poor soils, preferably neutral to alkaline, in full sun. Dislikes excessive winter wet. Best to cut back regularly to retain a bushy shape and prevent the plant becoming leggy. Can be damaged by severe winters in cold areas.
Traditionally used as a culinary herb, but also makes an attractive ornamental shrub for hot, dry positions such as a Mediterranean style garden. Can be used as an informal hedge in mild areas.
