This plant will surely attract attention! In late spring, the lovely, blue-green mound of leaves is covered with masses of heavily fringed, edible blooms creating a rainbow of color in white, pink, lilac, and rose that butterflies can't resist. Some flowers may be bicolored or have contrasting eyes or rings. The sweet, flowery scent is often compared to jasmine. A wonderful choice for an old-fashioned cottage garden, cutting garden, or perennial border.

I want to live in these flowers. They have a sweet, spicy scent that I just can't get enough of. I'm buying more seeds so that I can have them in more locations in my flower and veggie beds. The flowers are wonderfully unique, and the grey-green foliage is pretty too.
