This is one plant that blooms from August through to frost and is deciduous and should be pruned back to six inches in the spring. Its blooms are deep blue to purple, are fragrant, and deer resistant. It is native to China and Japan and it attracts butterflies. Once established it is drought resistant and needs a well draining soil, full sun, and grows to a height of 2'-3'.
