The Twizzle family just can’t stop winning awards . . . and no wonder! This purple variety introduces a whole new color into the Beard-tongue family, as well as flowering the first year from seed. Recipient of both America’s and Europe’s highest honors for flowering seed, Twizzle Purple will dazzle you!
Flag-shaped magenta-violet blooms flutter all along the tall, slender stems of this native perennial, signaling to butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds that a nectar source is near. Boasting half the foliage of older varieties, Twizzle Purple also sports twice the flowering stem, bringing you longer, more elegant blooming wands without sacrificing plant size! And still, like its award-winning sister Scarlet, Purple is compact enough for containers.
And best of all, Twizzle is open pollinated. This means the plant will come true from seed. Let it self-sow in your garden or collect the seeds in fall and plant them wherever you want an injection of summer-long color!
Sow these seeds in fall for earlier spring blooms, or start indoors in late winter for first-year summer blooms. Twizzle doesn’t mind! A long-lived perennial in most climates, it makes itself right at home!
Quite drought-tolerant once established in the garden, Twizzle sets masses of 1- to 1?-inch tubular blooms. It loves dry soil and doesn’t mind poor fertility, heat, or other stresses. Twizzle is a fine choice for containers as well as the sunny border. Zones 4-9.
