    This Australian native is not well know but is easy to grow and has a lovely fragrance. The tallest growth on my plant is about 20". It likes bright light and to dry between waterings.

    Where I have it now it is a minimum winter night of 56F. I don't know how cold it can go and be ok.

    Hi Marni, do you give it a dry rest in the winter?
