You can't ignore the tropical effect of this pale purplish tinted Honey Bush. (The odd reddish-brown flowers smell of honey - the leaves of peanut butter.) Grows well in mild coastal gardens or heat sinks like Seattle but can be frozen back in nasty winters. It's pretty cool.

Info

An unusual form of this bold perennial with deeply serrated leaves that are tinted with lavender. The habit of this form is different as well, more of a low and spreading plant, to 6' tall and as wide. Full sun and rich soil. Evergreen to 20?F Mulch in fall. Plants must be established to grow as a perennial. The larger the size you plant and the more the plant grows during its first few leaves in the ground the hardier it will be to cold. Small, unwatered and uncared for plants will perish in their first winter.
