A drought tolerant shrub that is very attractive to butterflies and bees. Prune hard in spring to keep the shrub in shape and to produce more flowers. Can be pruned again in late spring to delay flowering to later in the fall.

Leaves are fragrant. The seed heads will remain on the plant through the winter providing a valuable food source for birds.

This plant has a fire-resistance score of 2, meaning it should be planted 90 feet or greater from your home. Idaho Firewise: http://idahofirewise.org/
