  • Great for an upright accent to mounding perennials
  • More compact variety
  • A big favorite of the butterflies

Outstanding spikes of rose-lavender flowers open from the top down in early summer. The foliage is green, narrow, and opposite. It is deer resistant, attracts butterflies, and makes a great cut flower. A fantastic plant that adds vibrant color and excellent stature to the garden. One of the best perennials for the sunny border.

    Planted in full sun and the blooms have been relatively uneven but the plant seems to be hearty. Nice color. The real test will be if they bloom this next spring.

    My plants were shipped across country to Oregon in two boxes. the only hitch was that the shipping company decided to put the boxes on different trucks. Despite that the plants all arrived in good condition, due largely to the care taken in preparing them for shipping at Romence. These plants have done very well in my garden and have reached full size this season.
