A truly spectacular perennial! Each plant has multiple graceful spikes of blossoms in white, pink, deep rose, violet, and purple that attract butterflies. Fairly drought tolerant, fast growing, excellent in dry landscape gardens, or alone in mass plantings. Wonderful cut flowers; even dried stalks with seed pods add interest to dried arrangements.

Looking forward to this summer!

5 out of 5 stars Jan 5, 2021
Zone 5b - Colorado Front Range. For first year blooms, I started these in newspaper pots in mid-Feb in a greenhouse and transplanted in mid-May. We got blooms, so I'm looking forward to them coming back, taller and stronger!
