The top growth will be cut back to the ground in cold winters but, if the roots are given a good mulch in the autumn, plants will often survive the winter outdoors and resprout freely from the base in the spring. There are some named varieties. 'Scarlet Pineapple' has leaves with a pineapple-like scent. The flowers are very attractive to bees, providing a good source of nectar.Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer.
