    I can smell them as soon as I walk out the front door. My house is far enough away it doesn't matter to the neighbors.

    Do you keep them in the GH in the winter? Do they go dormant?

    They have been hardy here. (Zone 7) I do have them planted on the south side of the house.

    Ah, but the foliage is quite attractive, Michael. I grow a relative of this one for the foliage.
