Comments: The white flowering fountain plant is somewhat less popular than the bright red flowering cultivar. As with the red flowering plant, this one produces wiry green stems, and with age they have a nice cascading form when planted in a raised bed. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers.
