Supports the Monarch and other butterfly populations, as well as bees and hummingbirds. The sweet vanilla fragrance and large numbers of flowers, support the gardener’s enjoyment, as well. May reach 5 feet tall in favored locations. (CAUTION: The milky sap is poisonous if ingested in large quantities, and contact with the skin may cause dermatitis in sensitive individuals.)
