OriginNative to North America


One of the longest blooming perennials in our gardens. Vivid rose purple flower spikes rise above the bronzy green foliage. Forms a compact, branched clump of aromatic, slug and deer resistant foliage. Well-adapted to dry soils.

From midsummer into fall, plants are topped by a plethora of brightly colored flower spikes which add a bright spot of color to the landscape. 

This plant is well-adapted to thrive in dry soils and is right at home in rock gardens and xeric container plantings where it will attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and honeybees.
