An erect, clump-forming, short-lived perennial which can remain in the garden for many years by self-seeding. Forms a large basal rosette of woolly silvery-green leaves from which rise multiple flowering stems bearing long spikes of flowers in soft pastel shades of lavender, cream and rose with purple center stamens. Long late spring to summer bloom period with possible fall rebloom.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions including poor dry soils, but must have good drainage. This plant is a short-lived perennial (typically 2-3 years). Remove spent flower spikes to maintain plant appearance and to encourage additional bloom. However, some flower spikes should be left to facilitate self-seeding or for seed collection. 'Southern Charm' is a hybrid seed strain that is easily grown from seed, often blooming the first year, and will self-seed in the garden. Also may be propagated by root cuttings in early spring.
