      You're welcome :) It sets viable seed here, too, which is lucky as it's not particularly long-lived.

      Interesting. Mine is going strong after ten years. No sign of flagging unlikes hyssops, which I love, but are very hard to get established and which only seem to last about three years.

      It will grow on clay. Some people with heavy clay who can't grow lavender grow caryopteris in place of lavender.
