Lower-growing species than its cousin L. camara, with a less refined look but plenty of flower power. It is likewise tender, apt to die back to the ground if temperatures dip below around 25F, but with a good probability of recovery from its roots when spring weather arrives. Flowers on the species are purple, but other colors are readily available – ours are yellow.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
