This tall, outstanding plant makes a bold statement! Its very large leaves and unusual flower clusters create a dramatic look in the garden. Lovely in a white garden or planted with equally tall or colorful flowers like delphiniums. The flowers are very fragrant from late afternoon into evening and eye-catching in the moonlight. Attracts pollinators, especially butterflies and hummingbirds!
