Heliotropium arborescens ‘Alba’

 

Heliotropium arborescens ‘Alba’ Heliotropium arborescens ‘Alba’

THE most fragrant Heliotrope! Much more vigorous & longer lived than the deep purple & dwarf forms, ‘Alba’ is a true perennial living for many years if treated to part shade & rich, well drained soil. I love working in the vicinity of this deliciously scented heirloom, its continuous parade of Spring thru Fall blooms give off a powerful aroma of sweet vanilla, making weeding anywhere nearby a scent-sual thrill! You’ll get plenty of starry, white-flowered, 3-4” clusters pleasingly displayed from top to bottom on a bushy, bright green mound of textured foliage. Cut back in Winter & side-dress with compost in early Spring for perfect appearance year after year. Wonderful outside a window or trailing from a container (15+ gal). Butterflies!
