Can be added at any stage in the cooking and t can also be used in teas, and cool drinks as an healing tonic. Widely used by Native American and Native Mexican tribes in their natural medicine, religious ceremonies and as a cleansing smoke when made into a smudge stick.
Requires a well drained location in full sun. Looks good in any succulent, desert or xeriscape garden planting especially warm coastal regions.
Cut back any old or dead foliage and apply the recommended dose of Seasol and Powerfeed regularly in summer and early autumn.
