A semi-evergreen perennial from Central America.

Has linear to lance shaped, deep green, toothed leaves. Bears tubular lavender, pink/violet flowers.

Flowers late May-July

Loves a well drained, fertile soil in sun or light shade. Not very hardy so bring indoors before the frosts or mulch heavily in milder climates
