Ocimum labiatum is a fast-growing, many branched, semi-deciduous shrub with aromatic heart-shaped leaves. It is a very popular garden plant as it is hardy to a moderate degree of frost and extreme drought, once established. The plant may be cut back to one-third of its height every couple of years to rejuvenate the woody growth.
Most are sympodial epiphytes, or rarely terrestrials.

Olearia phlogopappa is a hardy shrub for well drained, moist soils in full sun or semi shade and can be very spectacular in flower. The greyish green foliage is variable over the range of the species but leaves are typically oblong or narrow elliptical in shape, and often with a dusty appearance on the upper surface. The well-displayed, daisy flower heads may be white, pink or mauve.
Herbaceous perennial that forms tufted mounds; similar in appearance to Liriope, but the attraction here is the black foliage. Flowers are lavender, blue, pink or whitish; seed-bearing fruits are black.
Grow this novelty as a grasslike groundcover, for border edging, in a rock garden or in containers.
Full sun to partial shade is recommended, but part shade is probably the best place for it to hold its unique coloring. Soils should be kept moist and be of a sandy or loamy composition. An acidic or neutral soil pH is best.
