DROUGHT and DEER RESISTANT, bringer of bees and butterflies, practically everblooming and a good strong perennial, you just can’t go wrong with this Mediterranean “pincushion” flower. To 3’ x 3’, it blooms its heart out with hundreds of go-with-everything 1.5” soft primrose blooms on a mass of multi-branching stems. Excellent as a front and center, always in bloom mainstay of your garden, it likes good drainage so place accordingly. Cut back to 1” in Winter. Side dress with 1” of compost in Spring and dead-head for continuous bloom. Self-sows!
