(Gas Plant) A garden classic, Dictamnus 'Purpureus' brings beauty to the garden in early summer. Standing 24-36 inches tall, spikes with dark pink buds open to light pink flowers that hover over the deep green, lemon scented foliage. Planted in full sun Dictamnus 'Purpureus' enjoy rich, moist soil. Dictamnus typically are a very long lived perennial and do not like to be moved once planted, we recommend finding a forever home for them. It has been noted that seedling may appear around the mother plant, they can easily be removed and transplanted if you wish.
