Also known as English Mace (but not to be confused with the spice of the same name, which is the outer covering of the nutmeg), this herb is little known and not much used nowadays. In fact, it's a bit of a mystery all round. Some claim it was discovered in Switzerland in1798, while others believe it to be a native of Italy and Spain, that was once used in England as a strewing herb. Either way, it's definitely due a revival.

  • Hardy perennial.
  • Prefers sunny, well-drained site. 
  • May need staking on exposed sites. 
  • Forms spreading clumps of bright green foliage with divided leaves, reaching a height of 30 cms (12") .
  • Attractive creamy-white daisy-like flowers on long stems appear mid- to late summer. Blooms well into autumn.
  • Cut back after flowering for a fresh supply of leaves.
  • Can be grown in a container. Water regularly, cut back after flower, and over-winter in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse.

Culinary Uses

  • Use young aromatic leaves sparingly in soups and stews.
  • Goes well with potato salad, pasta and rice dishes.
  • Use to stuff a chicken

Other Uses

  • Makes an excellent cut flower for the house.
  • Dry flower stems for winter flower arrangements.
