I am told, it is actually a very important herb for burns. If you have a little accident with the stove or ironing then a few leaves of that will be very useful. As I am the only one who will do the ironing. That is OK.
(Although there are ladies to do almost every domestic chore in Panama, most do not iron. Legend has it, ironing will make your face all twisted and crooked. So the chance of a Panamanian lady getting burns from an iron are small to nonexistent).
Gardening and gardeners here are practical folk. Useful things are allowed to flourish even is the aesthetic is a stretch. I have mint mixed with begonias and Sugar cane at the back of a flower bed. It is part of the charm of my rustic garden in the coffee.
