Herbaceous perennial native to western united states.  Makes tight clusters of lavender, long-tubed flowers that attract hummingbirds and children to nibble. Fantastic fresh cut flower and tasty tea herb. Sow in spring, by sprinkling seed in pots or on surface of a prepared seed bed, working in shallowly with fingers, and tamping well.  Keep evenly moist until germination, which takes 1 to 3 weeks.  Thin or transplant to 1 foot apart.

    Sowed a 6 pack with 1-2 seed per cell, then transplanted into various beds in yard by May. They didn’t do much that year other than persist. Overwintered great into thick clusters. No flowers year 1, I imagine that’s typical? Expecting some great production this summer. This 1 picture is was the other 6 clusters resemble.

      hi nick, right, the advantage of herbaceous perennial is they come back every year, and the disadvantage is that they usually don’t flower until the second year. as opposed to annuals that are likely to flower first year. of course there are exceptions, but for the most part if you see “herbaceous perennial” in the description, you would have to get started very early to see flowers in the first year and can expect voluminous flowers spring to summer of the second year. r
