This shrubby perennial grows to a maximum height of five feet with full sun. From midsummer to fall it has large, fragrant panicles of lavender-purple spikes that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It’s best used for massed plantings in borders. It is deer resistant and will tolerate drought once it is established. Pruning the plant back in the spring will encourage more growth with the accompanying increase in flowers.
