Tender perennial here in z5, but this sweetly fragrant lovely is a must have in a pot on our porch every year! Like a huge magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
'Hybrid Blue Wonder' I find this is one of the most fragrant & you can smell it all over the yard.
Beautiful, fragrant blooms appear in clusters on this tender perennial in Zones 9-11 and annual in cooler zones. (San Antonio, Tx.)
