It can be upright or trailing. The upright form can be 150 centimetres (59 inches) tall.
It has needle-like leaves about 2-4 centimetres (one inch) long.
The leaves, twigs, and flowers are aromatic and used to flavour food, and for scented products such as perfume.
Its flowers are small and white, pink, purple, or blue.
It blooms in spring and summer in temperate zones, and can be constantly blooming in warm climates.
