This bushy, aromatic plant is native to southern Europe and Asia, and has a pungent, spicy-minty taste. Both the leaves and flowers can be used in salads, soups, fruit salads and teas. It is also used in the production of cordials and liqueurs such as Chartreuse. It is widely grown as an ornamental garden plant, and attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The name is mentioned in the Bible, (1 Kings 4:33, Psalms 51:7 and John 19:29) but it is most likely a different plant then the one we now know by this name.
Name this plant.
