Growing & Maintenance Tips:

This old-fashioned annual is an heirloom plant from the Victorian era, and is known for its heavenly vanilla scent. Last year, I planted it with cupheas and it withstood the strong afternoon sun in my front yard. Extremely easy to grow, I just left it alone until frost!

The Heliotrope 'Marino Silver Blue' plant has clusters of lavender flowers. It is a low maintenance plant yet produces beautiful displays. It can be grown in flower beds, containers, and planters.
