Description

This is a short growing shrub that has low moisture needs making it an excellent choice for those dry spaces in your garden. Roots are nitrogen fixing, enriching the soil where it is planted. Leaves can be dried and made into a tea, a common practice during the revolutionary war. Flowers provide a source of food for butterflies.
