Lavender in cool weather, royal purple in warm!

The ideal summer annual, indoors or out!
Every garden deserves Heliotrope... or perhaps I should say every gardener! Redolent of vanilla (for some reason, the smell always reminds me of homemade chocolate chip cookies!) and filled with valuable dark blue color, this annual plant is a treat in the kitchen window, hanging basket, or garden bed!

Heliotrope is an old-fashioned beauty with fragrance to spare. It combines beautifully in the garden or windowboxes and large planters with MiniPetunias and other unscented annuals, transforming the summer landscape with sweet, rich color. Equally suited to indoor or outdoor culture, its blooms darken with the heat -- a lovely effect as the weather changes and you have both lavender and royal flowerheads on a single plant!

You will adore this high-performing, trouble-free annual plant. Get your planters and garden beds ready for an explosion of fragrance and color like they've never before seen!
