Whenever I go to the Okanagan for the summer I am enchanted by the patches of perovskia that provide important forage for bees in this hot, dry period. Look at the way the plant glows in the bright sun at the Quail's Gate Winery. This is a good plant for those who go on holiday in July because it will thrive in a xeriscape garden. I can see this interplanted with teasel, echinops and sea holly.
A big thanks to those friends who watered my garden while I was on holiday!!!!!!!
