Bought this as a very small plant at a local mom and pop nursery. First year it was ... eh... just nothing. Overwintered nicely and second year it filled out nicely and sent up glorious spikes of pink salvia looking flowers that were just beautiful. Hummers and big fat bumblebees just wouldn't leave it alone (awww. :-)) Wish I had taken a pic as they are now just done blooming and I've deadheaded them. When they rebloom I will try to remember to get a pic. Planted them next to purple penstemon and blue salvia greggi and the combination was striking. Dry, hot summer and poor clay soil doesn't seem to bother this plant at all. Love it!
