Small enough to fit nicely into city gardens and town-house yards.

Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Apply fertilizer in spring. Remove spent blooms for a neat appearance. Prune back annually to promote vigorous new growth.

Can't Kill this Plant - BEES LOVE IT
by Jenn, February 12, 2017

I have a black thumb and this plant has thrived with no attention. It literally "humms" with bees from early June - 1st frost. My brother ran over one with a lawn mower - in full bloom - and it came back. It also seeds itself like crazy. I bought 2 and now have a dozen planted around my house. It's a MUST have.
