Plant Highlights

This is a shrub about 4-6 feet tall, spreading by underground rhizomes to make small thickets. The stems are stout and set with very large, densely furry, arrow shaped grey-green leaves. These have a sweet, pungent fragrance. During the summer months large, openly branched clusters of reddish purple blossoms are borne at the shoot tips. Sun to part shade, moderate to occasional watering, hardy to 15 degrees F. or less.
