This plant is a friend to bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies, especially monarchs who find it very attractive.
Beautiful clusters of deep lilac flowers that are easy to grow and highly appealing to butterflies, including monarchs. An excellent choice for a border plant.
For spring planting, mix the seeds with damp soil and refrigerate them for 30 days before sowing in the garden, just below the soil surface. Germination should occur within 15 to 30 days. Water the seedlings regularly until they establish themselves. Although they flower with watering, mature plants tolerate some drought and can grow in poor soil. Deadhead faded flower heads to prolong flowering.
