Outstanding shrub for a butterfly garden. Provides great structure and subtle color to accent both the perennial border as well as the shrub border. Very easy to grow but needs full sun and can be a bit slow to get settled in. Once it gets going though it is an awesomely long blooming and beautiful shrub.
