This one is supposedly perennial. So far, as second-year plants, they support their spherical clusters of deep pink flowers on spindly stems; not exactly a strong presence in the garden. I hope that they will assert themselves more strongly in years to come.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
