|Includes about 40 annuals, biennials, and perennial herbs and shrubs that generally are grown for their flowers. Native to Europe, the Canary Islands, Africa and West Asia, they have various leaf forms and flowers in clusters or spikes, as well as bristly hairs or even harder bristles. Water freely in summer, moderately at other times. Propagate by seed in spring or by semi-ripe cuttings in summer. Susceptible to whitefly.
This bold, tall-growing plant with dramatic flower spikes is good for slopes, against walls, and at the back of beds. Cut off faded flowers and prune lightly to keep shapely.
