I planted one of these last year, and it's just starting to bloom with gorgeous purplish flowers on about 10 stalks about 2' tall. It is gorgeous with nearby Wasatch penstemon and yellow ground cover underneath.

Planted two years ago and and it has bloomed each year. Cut back after blooming. Pretty blue flowers with little care.

It grows very fast at least in my yard and the butterfly wont leave it alone.
