  • I have two of these planted in my front bed. They are amazing performers, very low-maintenance, and eye-catching. Many people ask me about them. They attract the most beautiful butterflies and the color is outstanding paired with bright yellows or pinks.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • I have had this plant in my garden for three years. This year, I added two more. They are always loaded with butterflies and they smell wonderful. Also are pretty carefree.
