Nice one Joseph. Another one I was hoping to have but zone 7 is a bit of a stretch from zone 2. The fruity fragrance of the leaves would be very nice, of course I love the blooms.

Thanks, Linda! This flower head is now fading, and it should be interesting if it makes seeds...never saw a pollinator on it, and I looked at it often. I hope it makes more flowers, so far I think it is still getting acclimated to Delaware from California where its home was in the nursery.
