This hard-working group of perennials does so much. They bloom for a long time in wonderful colors atop tall, striking plants. They produce a nectar that is irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. Most are heat and drought tolerant. And their foliage and flowers are fragrant, with scents ranging from licorice to bubblegum.
Most require well-drained soil and prefer full sun, although they will tolerate light shade.
