'Violet Queen's' flowers and leaves share a wonderful scent in the garden. It blooms non-stop through the summer; just remove the spent flower spikes and enjoy its lovely, continual violet color in garden beds mixed with colorful annuals. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators will also flock to the show. Snip a few full blooms for bouquets and table-top arrangements. Start indoors and be rewarded with first-year blooms. Drought-tolerant and perennial in USDA zones 3–9. Deer resistant.
