Native to the coast ranges from San Francisco to Los Angeles. From April through August 1/2"pink flowers emerge on a 1-2' interrupted spike that make excellent cut flowers. It likes part shade/full shade. Some companion plants are Iris douglasiana, Juncus patens; grows under Ceanothus thyrsiflorus, and between Pinus radiata. It will survive full sun only on the immediate coast. It tolerates clay or sand and does better with moderate water. Adult butterflies sip nectar from flowers. It has survived here for 12+ years with no water or care. It took a dive in the cold snap of 1990, but it recovered. It is called hedge nettle but it doesn't sting. Use it in woodland gardens or perennial gardens. It does sucker freely. This makes it useful in northslope, eastslope rockwalls. This also helps the hummingbirds which like this plant if they can get to it.
