Summer light originates from and grows wild in the southern United States. Let it light up in Swedish summer gardens with clouds of small butterfly-like flowers.
The summer light gives an elegant feeling in both flower beds and pots with summer-flowering annuals. A tall perennial with a bushy growth that grows up to one meter high. The summer light lifts and gives the planting a graceful height in combination with other plants. It acts as a weaving plant that fills and binds together different plants in a nice way.
Thrives in well-drained and nutritious soil, and grows best in sun to partial shade but can withstand drought.
