To call this perennial a strong spreader loved by hummingbirds is an understatement. Of course the bees love it too. Flowers appear disheveled, lending a very welcoming and natural look to the plants which grow 10 to36 inches tall, blooming red, pink or purple flowers June through August. The foliage is aromatic!
