    Heliotrope... just keep pinching off the spent blossoms and it will continue to bloom all summer. Enjoy it's vanilla like fragrance!

    Yes, it is heliotrope - I have them on my deck in pots every summer. They stay until late fall. The butterflies love them! I think they smell like cherry-vanilla!

    I have them too. In Southern Cali I cut them back and so far they keep blooming. The fragrance is so nice.
