This is quite an old plant that has a very woody base. It has areas that die back each year but are quickly filled in with new growth. It is cut to the ground and downsized a bit each winter. It has handled our drought years and a year of record rainfall with equal ease. The bloom is not very strong or showy but the plant is beautifuly foliage. I always mention it during our 'What's Blooming' tours because of it long history of cultivation for many uses. This photo is from May 8th 2017 and doesn't do it full justice.
