Wow! even when you take the names off the plant label there can still be much confusion and no wonder!

But wiki puts us right :)

Lots of conflicting info out there. Great that the bees love this little plant. Does it grow by cutting or seed?

I'll take a cutting and pop it in some seed raising mix since I'm planting some seeds today.
Will see how it goes.

Will be interesting.

I really need to be propagating some new bee plants like the Bush Basil and Pineapple Sage. The first died - it seems to just keep flowering and growing until it burns itself out, a bit like the bees themselves. The sage has been there for years and I keep cutting it back and it grows back. Sooner or later it will also give up the ghost.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
