Alecost, or costmary as it is sometimes known, is a mat-forming, woody-based perennial that spreads by rhizomes. It produces lovely long, oblong leaves with silvery hairs. In late summer and early autumn, it produces numerous white, yellow-centred, daisy-like flowers. However, this plant is normally grown for its balsam-scented foliage, making it an attractive addition to any herb garden. Divide the plant in the spring or autumn.
