Create a palette of colors in your garden with scarlet, purple, pink, white, yellow, and bicolored flowers combined with elegant, blue-green foliage. Butterflies enjoy their nectar. Excellent cut or dried flower; one flower per stem. The mild-clove-flavored petals make a colorful garnish to salads, desserts, and cold drinks.
