Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

#fragrant but unbelievably invasive. I slung some of these in a tub without water or attention and they cheerfully took root. If you're seeking a plant that smells exactly like Lemon Pledge and will survive a nuclear blast, this is your quarry right here...

Mine took over the garden and spread like wildfire. Had to get rid of most of it. Used to use it in tea. It definitely smells like lemon pledge though. 🤣 😆
