Two big weaknesses. It is late to show up. This leads to the second and bigger weakness. It tends to look pretty bad over winter: a big brown mass of brown stems once the seeds and leaves fall after it dies back for winter.

A beautiful plant for those who like to grow natives. Insects love it.

Be extremely watchful of watering this plant. It is easily killed (more so than an average plant) by overwatering - I learned the hard way.

I love Hot Lips. Even here in Zone 5B. It winters over indoors without missing a beat.
