    Pretty clusters of tiny yellow flowers are excellent for attracting a range of pollinating insects, such as bumblebees and butterflies.

    It is a caterpillar food plant for several moths, including the hummingbird hawk-moth.


    With a delicate scent of new hay when dried it makes a lovely herbal pillow.


    Advised to plant in informal groups to encourage recognition and attract bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.
