About This Plant

Sun or shade; it needs less water in filtered shade. A low-sprawling evergreen perennial with scarlet-red blooms and softly (and sometimes sharply) fuzzy apple-green leaves. Betony is deer resistant and drought-tolerant; tender new foliage may be burned or discolored, however, in extreme cold (below 20 degrees). It is very well behaved in the garden, and attracts hummingbirds.

Maintenance

None required; may appreciate some light supplemental water in summer weather.
