This plant has aromatic leaves and produces fragrant white flowers from spring to mid-summer, which turn into purple/blackberries. Add the leaves (towards the end of cooking) to pork dishes or lamb when barbecuing. The berries can be dried and ground to use as a spice for game and venison. Plant in fertile soil in a shady spot.
