This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Lindheimer's beeblossom is a long-lived hardy perennial that is native to Texas and Louisiana. The cultivar 'Franz Valley' has an upright, airy habit, fine green foliage and tall stems lined with delicate, open, five petaled flowers with long prominent anthers. These fragrant, bee and butterfly magnets appear from early summer to fall and are pink in bud opening to white. Remove spent flower stalks to extend flowering and prevent self-sowing.
Beeblossom is tolerant of drought, heat and humidity. It prefers sites with full sun and average soil with ample drainage. Plant it in sunny perennial borders and wildflower gardens.
