Chicken Feet.  Native to China and named for the floral phalangeal arrangement of small greenish white flowers on thin stems which are quite fragrant.  Widely grown subshrub for its use as an aromatic especially for a tea additive and for medicinal properties.  Useful in the frost-free  or nearly so shade garden.  We've enjoyed more than a few chicken feet at meals in our travels through areas where this grows.
