    • This plant is a real winner ! I grew twelve of these, six small plants in each of two five gallon buckets with drainage holes and Miracle Grow potting mix, Planted in April, they grew vigorously, bloomed from early July through mid-September, attracted large numbers of bees, including native bees (as opposed to honeybees), and were really beautiful plants. It is now November 3rd, and I just divided them into three plants per five gallon bucket. No insect pests, no problems. If you like pollinators, these are your plants.

    • This plant is so clean, beautiful, and long-lasting. I totally recommend for the front of the border. Pair with Lavendula 'Sweet Romance.'

    • Easy Peasy. Performed as expected. Beautiful blooms first season planted. Deer and Rabbits left them alone.
