Description

Heliotrope hee-lee-oh-TROPE  

An old-fashioned plant that has seen a resurgence in popularity, heliotrope is often first found by scent rather than by sight. Clusters of small purple or blue blooms top off darker green foliage. Those flowers have a sweet scent likened to pleasant aromas of vanilla, baby powder, grapes or cherry pie. Pollinators love these flowers too!
