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.
