A small, shrubby perennial from the chocolate family. It averages 2′ and is covered with clusters of beautiful, small, bright pink flowers that bloom practically non-stop spring through fall. It is drought tolerant, grows quickly & will provide color during summer heat. An excellent nectar source for butterflies!
