Beautiful in full bloom! Tends to spread (or reseed?), so I just pull it out where I don't want it. I do have trouble forcing myself to remove any of it, though, because it looks so pretty in large masses.

After blooming I cut it back to the basal growth. New growth is more appealing and it will continue to bloom all Summer, though not as much as the first bloom.

Bees love it and my Hummers sometimes visit it as well.

This plant is beautiful until fully blooming.It spreads out from the center and flops horribly.
Stems laying horizontally on the ground.

Love the two-toned blossoms. The foliage is a bit coarse, but this sage has a long bloom period.

Grows 24-30 by 12-18. Zone 4-9. Prefers well-drained soil and full sun. Bicolor light and dark pink flowers on tall spikes. A hardy hybrid with a tidy habit and lots of humming bird-attracting and butterfly-attracting blooms.
