Glossy bright green toothed leaves are repellant to mosquites; small white to cream flowers are a favorite of honey bees. It is used to attract them to new hives by rubbing the leaves on the inside of empty boxes. It makes an outstanding beverage tea which reduces stress, soothes upset stomaches and headaches. Also nice for potpourri. Reseeds itself. A lot.
