Comments: Has bronzy-reddish foliage early in spring and fall and medium green otherwise. Foliage reminds one of spirea. This upright shrub is very hardy, has some drought resistance, and is used as a hedge or accent plant. FLORIDA BETONY(Stachys floridana) should NEVER, NEVER,NEVER be planted in any landscape. It is almost impossible to rid you garden of it without using chemicals that only professionals should use.
