Interesting Facts

Flowers are edible and sweet.  Showy flowers and nectar attract hummingbirds and butterflies like crazy.  Can be used as a low-maintenance hedge replacement beneath windows in landscape beds.  Removing spent flowers encourages nonstop blooming.  Stems are soft and easy to hand-prune to control size and shape.  Can cut back by half to encourage a thicker, less "leggy" plant shape.
