They usually are evergreen, woody shrubs, several species grow as annuals or perennials and are native from Southern North America through South America, in South Africa and in southern Asia. Many species have nicely fragrant leaves and make showy pot plants. All are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter keep plants slightly drier at a minimum of some 10°C. If plants become to large, they may be cut back in spring.
Sow fine seeds on top of any rich, well drained soil at some 20°C throughout the year. Do not cover the dustlike seeds from Aloysia with soil. Keep seedlings in full sun, especially if they are sowed in winter months.
