Hardy Heliotrope

AGAIN!! A repeat already and you will see it again on a moving day post. This is a great plant for Oklahoma gardens!  I got mine three years ago at Bustani Plant Farm and have never seen it any other place.  It blooms and blooms, and loves heat and drought.  I keep cutting it back all summer to keep it blooming in a space about 3′ x 3′.  It has self seeded a bit, and I have transplanted it with success but it’s not that easy to dig up as it seems to have only one tap root. This plant both resprouts from the roots in my garden and self seeds, both of which I encourage as the bees and butterflies find it attractive. USDA Zones 7 to 9.
