If you’ve been disappointed with heliotrope in the past, it’s time to take another look. While others can look tired and sparse by midseason, Aromagica™ Purple heliotrope remains full and covered in large, fragrant, purple blossoms. They attract pollinating bees, butterflies and hummingbirds all summer long, especially with a little deadheading now and then. Expect the flower color to be most intense in high light conditions. This plant’s rugose, dark green foliage and fragrant blooms are typically not attractive to deer.
