Seven months of blooming! The rigidly erect bright-green foliage reaches 4' tall and is 4 in. wide at its broadest point. This robust plant will throw an 8' to 12' spike that branches out like an antenna. The erect, bell-shaped flowers are creamy white with pink-green blush on the exterior. The flowers are full of nectar and are favorites of hummingbirds. The plants will flower from early April to October.

This isn't a spectacular plant, but one of quiet beauty. It has grown for 15 years in my garden with no extra water or care. Faithfully every spring sets a large spike. It looks great with wildflowers at its base, then native grasses in fall. One of my favorites. (Posted on 5/7/2010 by linda in cc).
