Wow! Is that one plant?! I usually grow Amistad in containers, maybe I should make space for it in a flowerbed this year. Thumbs up

Yes, that is one plant. Amistad grows pretty large in my yard. The plant in the photo was cut back by a couple feet in early July and it still grew to 4 ft x 4+ft. Amistad is one of the hummer plants I always cut back mid-season to keep it from getting out of hand and overwhelming the surrounding plants. I lose a month of beautiful blooms when I do that, but it has to be done. The first time I grew Amistad in a container it was 7 ft wide by August.
