    Wonderful Addition
    Planted this year (2009) and I am in love. The blooms are gorgeous and it smells great. A wonderful addition to my garden! Well worth the price.

    Butterfly Favorite
    These plants are great to have because they have pretty flowers in the summer and the butterflies like these plants a lot. I had several on mine last year. Unfortunately they do not provide a host for the butterfly larvae. These plants may look dead in the spring but by mid-June these plants are looking nice and they grow fast. Prune down any old branches that have no new growth in early spring.
