This magnificent ground cover is special in the way its whorled, dark green leaves are assembled on the stem at several levels, always arranged like a star around it. In late spring, a pretty bouquet of lightly scented starry white flowers adds to the beauty of this plant, resplendent even without its flowers. It can form a beautiful even carpet, even in shady areas, and it remains green until frost. The whole plant is aromatic, it is sometimes even sold in the fine herbs section. It likes humid and cool environments, so shade or partial shade should be favored.
