Landscape Categories: Plants That Attract Butterflies
Plants That Attract Hummingbirds
Comments: Delightfully fragrant clusters of pink flowers attract butterflies. Cut back plants in late winter because blooms are produced on current season's growth, not on former year's growth. Plant in full sunlight and a well drained soil. Plants will grow quite large if size and spread are not controlled by pruning.
