  • Comments: All parts of this plant are aromatic making it one of the best to draw in bees and butterflies. A well grown plant is covered with the beautiful misty-blue flowers in late august. In northern climates it will usually die back like a buddliea in winter, but the roots are perfectly hardy. Best flowers are achieved from plants cut short each spring, blooms on new growth.
