This delightful, deer-resistant native plant attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The attractive, glossy dark green leaves set off the pure white summer flowers.  The flowers are wonderfully fragrant!  Plant it near the deck or patio to enjoy the sweet scent in mid-summer.  Selected for its extra-large flowers - individual florets are roughly double the size of other varieties.
