Abundant spikes of stunning violet-blue flowers rise above the aromatic foliage all summer long. The biggest variety in the Sallyfun™ series. A fantastic large container feature for porch or patio that works just as beautifully in annual mixed borders. Wonderful for cutting. Tender perennial; treat as an annual where not hardy.

Tolerates mild drought in a landscape; water potted plants regularly, when top 2 to 3 in. of soil is dry. Where hardy, cut back by one-third and fertilize in early spring.
