This silver foliage plant has the right texture, size and refined look to make any ordinary planting combination look spectacular. Similar in appearance to the herb Lavender, Curry Plant has nothing to do with the mix of spices used in Indian cooking and it’s not to be confused with Curry Leaf, (Muraya koenigii). Many people say the bruised foliage smells like the mix of spices know as curry but to me it smells more like pancakes and syrup. It is occasionally used to flavor dishes but usually not eaten and it contains essential oils which are used medicinally and therapeutically. The form of Curry Plant we offer is a secection with dense foliage and excellent silver color that sometimes will survive a zone 7 winter. This is an excellent designer foliage plant to combine with other foliage and flowering plants.
