This plant has nothing to do with the curry in Indian cooking, but it does have a strong curry-like fragrance and taste – so it can be added to salads.
It has very bold silver foliage and has bright yellow flowers in the summer.

A pollinator friendly plant including bees.
Can tolerate a coastal aspect with a certain amount of salt laden air.

This is suitable for the herb garden, border or patio.How easy is it to grow:
