1920 by Katherine Einck’s family (Diane Whealy’s
grandmother). Large fragrant heads and abundant
long-lasting foliage. Great for canning or fresh use.
Germination is erratic, so please be patient. Selfseeding
Green Thumb Tip
Sow seeds outdoors early in spring when ground
has warmed. Prefers rich well-drained soil and a
sheltered location out of the wind. Will readily
volunteer each year from dropped seeds.
