A dwarf form with large lavender-rose flower clusters. Rich nectar source for wildlife. Dark green foliage is mildew resistant. A low-maintenance addition to native plant gardens. If you are looking for a plant that guarantees hummingbirds - this is it. The little birds can not resist the huge, nectar rich flowers, and will dart in and out of the garden all day feeding on them. The leaves smell like mint when rubbed and can be used to flavor teas. Deer hate it!
