Plant Type: Perennials
The soft lilac pink flowers have a darker eye, and perfume the air with their sweet fragrance. The large blooms create a spectacular show in your summer garden. Perfect as a cut flower and also a magnet for butterflies! Good as a cut flower or a bright spot in any garden space!
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Grow in moderately fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. Best in full sun. Prefers rich, moist, organic soils. Needs good air circulation (space well and thin out stems as needed) to help combat potential powdery mildew problems. Intolerant of drought and needs to be watered in dry spells. Avoid overhead watering however. Appreciates a summer mulch which helps keep the root zone cool. Remove faded flower panicles to prolong bloom period and to prevent unwanted self-seeding (cultivars generally do not come true from seed)
