This is the real attention-getter in late summer and fall as the rich, honeysuckle-like fragrance pervades the evening air from the 2", butterfly-like white flowers. The stalks emerge from a thick, slowly growing rhizome and grow through the spring and summer. In late summer, the pinecone-like buds form atop the stems. Soon the flowers emerge, a few each day, to perfume the air until the first heavy frost...ooh la la!

Lance shaped tropical looking leaves on upright stems 3-7’ tall…these robust lovelies are topped after warm summers with swooningly fragrant 6” clusters of white flowers that resemble butterflies. Needs a really warm spot (also performs in big tubs or pots), part shade to full sun and rich soil with plenty of moisture. Tolerates low wet areas, so great at pond edge. A dieback perennial in areas that freeze, evergreen in frost free climates.

A great subtropical accent in the perennial border. Tropical-looking foliage provides interest all season long. White fragrant flowers with yellow throats arrive in fall. Plant in the sunniest hottest spot in the garden in rich soil and provide good water. Mulch with fallen leaves in winter. In colder regions grow in a pot or store in dry peat moss and keep above zero.
