Comments: Flowering spring to fall, beginning after last freeze in spring and ending with freeze in fall. Very easy to grow. Deciduous in northern zones. Prune out old stalks periodically to keep plants rejuvenated. This is an old garden favorite that can live for many years. Flowers are highly fragrant.
