  • Description

  • Notes

Delightful accents of color are found with this informal shrub. It grows quickly to 6' tall. It can be controlled with pruning, and is a reliable bloomer intermittantly throughout the year, benefitting from infrequent, deep waterings and a little pruning. Attracts butterflies.
Frost tolerant to 28 F. Look for varieties with different growth habits and flower color.
