A stunning choice for the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year 2019! They state "As trouble free and dependable as it is eye-catching", and we agree. A wealth of rose-lavender spikes all summer are particularly fabulous in massed plantings.

Hummel means bumblebee in German - appropriate for this pollinator magnet - as well as honoring the town of Hummelo, Netherlands. Perennial Stachys performs like a Salvia, and deer will leave it alone. Deep green mounded is nearly evergreen foliage. Great choice, PPA!

Can be divided every 4-5 years in spring by removing rooted sections and transplanting. Benefits from partial shade in hot climates.
