This is one of the best perennial plants I've ever grown. It's so reliable. I've never seen any diseases or insect damage on it. It literally has hundreds of blooms each year. It never dies...even when mowed down by an idiot. Why this isn't a Perennial Plant of the Year yet is beyond me.

How tall, Clint? Nice looking plant. There are no comments in the database. Hint, hint! Hilarious!

I'm curious who the idiot was that mowed it down though?

LOL. I gave my mom one and my dad mowed it down. It still came back. This year he put round up on it. Not sure yet if it survived that. I joke about it with him.

They are between 3 and 4 feet tall. The original form is 6-7 feet tall here. It would be nice to have one even shorter.

Wow, I was thinking maybe 18". But I can find a place for 3-4' tall one.

Guess your dad doesn't like flowers? Or doesn't pay attention?

He doesn't pay attention. He says he didn't know they were flowers. He has cut down my mom's red verbena before. Lol. They are funny when they fight about him cutting her flowers down. She threatens his tomatoes. Rolling on the floor laughing
