    • Description
      • Purplish Red Flower Panicles in Summer
      • Easy to Grow in Average Soil and a Sunny Site
      • Attracts Bees, Butterflies, Pollinating Insects, and Hummingbirds

      Strong growing, drought tolerant, deciduous shrub with arching branches of green foliage. Large, spike like, purplish red, fragrant flowers are borne from early summer to frost. Plant in full sun in most, well drained soils. In northern climates, plants die back in winter so treat as a perennial and trim to 6 to 8 in. in height in early spring.

      • To accommodate mature size or when planting in groups, space 6 ft. away from other plants or structures
