    • Description

      Strong growing, drought tolerant, deciduous shrub with arching branches of gray-green foliage. Spike-like, deep pink flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds from early summer to frost. Prefers well drained, moist, fertile soil in full sun. In northern climates, plants die back in winter so treat as a perennial, and trim to 6-8 in. height in early spring. The plant will quickly reach 5 ft. tall. Try pairing with a darker blooming or a white Butterfly Bush to achieve a beautiful well-rounded look to the landscape. We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Oregon, South Carolina, or Washington.

      I didn't notice when I ordered this plant that it was to be shipped bare root. I bought it in July and it was fully leafed out, so it was touch and go for a while, especially with the hot weather we had this year. But the plant seems to have survived (I staked a tent of Tyvek around it to keep it out of the full sun). Since it is shipped bare root, you would be better off ordering it in the early spring or late fall, to give it a chance to develop some root structure before the hot weather of summer.
