A true biennial growing large rosettes of furry grey-green leaves its first year, followed by an impressive flowering stem 3-4’ tall in the second year. The powerful aromatic oils are found entirely in the flowering parts, leaves lacking any smell at all. Grown in large quantities for perfumery and medical use, or along walls and borders for a strong sensory impact. The fragrance has been compared to ambergris, and the stature and large floral presence have a personality that feels like an animal being. This particular strain comes from Redwood Seeds, and it is an outstanding one with large white-lilac-pink bracts outlined in sharp pink edges, surrounding light blue flowers.
