DROUGHT and HEAT tolerant and super bloomiferous, with loads of pretty blue flowers from Spring thru Fall? Whaa? One of my favesfor long season color in well-drained,low water gardens.Deadhead and you get endless 2" "pincushion" blooms on stiff, upright stems – great for cutting and butterflies. Added bonus: Very attractive soft green lobed foliage makes a pretty mound to 3' across. Cut back to 3" in late Fall and side-dress with 1" compost in Spring. Deer resistant!
