NARRATIVE This plant provides a nice color contrast to other non – variegated foliage in borders. The flowers attract hummingbirds to the garden and last several weeks.

Deer resistant and rabbit resistant. Protect from excessive winter moisture and use leaf mulch to protect roots from extreme cold when necessary.
