Notes for Identification: These plants need plenty of room. Once they are established, they are tolerant of adverse conditions. Prune plants growing in shade back to about 12" after flowers fade to avoid flopping. The new growth will be compact and some may re-flower. This species is distinctive for its broad leaves with rusty felted undersides. Source: rodale's illustrated encyclopedia of perennials by ellen phillips and c. Colston burrell
