Lindheimer's beeblossom is a long-lived hardy perennial that is native to Texas and Louisiana. It has an airy habit, fine green, rose or purple-hued foliage and tall stems lined with delicate, open, five petaled flowers with long prominent anthers. These bee and butterfly magnets appear from early summer to fall and are generally pink in bud opening to white. Remove spent flower stalks to extend flowering and prevent self-sowing. There are many beeblossom cultivars that vary in height, vigorousness, foliage color and flower color.
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. Smaller varieties are suitable for containers.
