This is a very HOT plant! Striking beautiful pink flowers all summer long are terrific for attracting hummingbirds. This plant is great in the border or in containers, and it is very long blooming – from mid June until October. Plant this in hot dry areas, or in hot humid locations. Grows to 3 feet tall, and prefers well drained soil. In heavy clay soils, be sure to add plenty of compost to make the soil better draining, and plant on a small mound.
