Bushy, upright perennial 2-3’ tall and wide with glossy, pinnate, fragrant foliage. Racemes of fragrant, five petaled purplish-pink flowers top the stems late spring thru early summer. Flowers emit a flammable oil which can be ignited by a match on a still summer night (does not hurt plant). Good cut flower. Resents disturbance after planting. Prefers evenly moist fertile soils (not soggy) in full sun. Slow to establish but thereafter a long-lived, low maintenance plant. Bait for slugs and snails when foliage emerges in spring. Rarely offered. These plants are small and painfully slow growing but they are so worth the effort!

USDA Zone 3a
Pot size: 3 inch pot
