‘Manhattan Lights’

Create eye-popping vertical impact! To 3’ tall and 2’ across, the hefty, sweetly scented upright spikes “pop” with electric purple and primrose yellow blooms on closely packed spires, 12-18” above a 2’ x 2’ mound of garden-enhancing, large, palmate foliage. You get glorious mid-Spring to mid-late Summer bloom and stunning cut flowers, plus bees and butterflies. Provide good air circulation and rich, well-drained soil. Even better, side-dress with 1.5” of compost in Spring and mid –Summer for maximum health and bloom. Cutting spent spikes extends bloom, too. Even extra impact when planted in multiples. Cut back to soil level in Fall. Returns reliably for 3-5 years. Deer resistant.
