A vibrant fuchsia-purple flower 2.5 to 3 inches wide is what first catches your eye. Next is the glossy mildew-resistant foliage. The combination makes ‘Pardon My Purple’ a winner in the landscape. At only 10 to 12 inches tall, it is shorter than most monardas and will work in containers as well as in traditional landscape plantings, patio beds and herb gardens.
