This is, however, a very vigorous perennial plant, and we sometimes need to 'weed' it here and there in our garden. It grows in a compost yard even after being thrown away.
We prune it two to three times a year after flowering and it flowers again after pruning.
Many kinds of wildlife come to this flowers for nectar; bees, butterflies, moths, and bumblebees.
