- Dwarf, compact habit and broader, bright mixed colors violet blue, pink and white bracts that last longer than the tiny enclosed flowers, giving an extended season of interest. The aromatic flowers have a vanilla-balsam aroma and are used in fresh floral arrangements. Also used in the perfume industry as a fragrance and fixative to tone down artificial scents.
- The Flowers sometimes are added to salads or used in teas. Young leaves are in odorous, but have a certain spiciness when prepared as fritters. Medicinal Used:
