Description

Perpetually busy with butterflies and bees, this is a nectar Mecca all summer. A perennial plant that will flower in its first year if sown early enough.

The toadflaxes are a new discovery for me. They flower for months at a stretch and look wonderful in the garden and cut in a small glass or jug.

Care Tips

Cut back repeatedly to stimulate additional blooms
