Did somebody say hummingbirds? If you have kids or a school pollinator garden, or just wish to sit in awe as a ruby-throated hummingbird visits your garden, then this plant is for you!! Who else will visit the tubular light purple-pink flowers? Long tongued bees such as bumblebees -magnificent! The dried seed heads are also spectacular in the garden in winter dusted with snow.
