“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”
~ E.O. Wilson, Biodiversity
A native perennial of great character with flowers that will remind you of the annual bedding plant Petunia. Charming, low growing clumps produce light purple/lavender, tubular flowers from May to Oct. The flowers arise in groups at the leaf axis. The square stems and the leaves are both quite hairy—a natural defense against dry conditions.
