  • Great for an upright accent to mounding perennials

  • 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. Fantastic plant that adds vibrant color and excellent stature to the garden. One of the best perennials for the sunny border.

    Very pleased with this selection due to its shorter height that fits with my garden scheme. The foliage is very pretty.
