Can't say enough good things about this plant. It has the richest purple blooms that seem to stick around forever. The plant does not overgrow itself and stays very clean and free of littler. Perfect for around pools or walkways.
It does attract a lot of bees and hummers seem to ignore them. Mine gets full Phx AZ sun all day and filtered sun in the late afternoon. I water it every two weeks and it seems really happy.

A very long flowering season. Flower spikes are tri-pronged, giving even more bloom. Does not dry well: the flowers become brown.
