This plant is also known as Shrub Verbena and Cherry Pie. It is said to be poisonous and that is why most animals avoid it and it has become a cursed weed in some tropical countries. It probably why I have no trouble with pests. It has survived a mild winter on my roof. I like the plant as it flowers all summer and autumn with its beautiful light purple and yellow flowers. The leaves have a smell some people has said to be obnoxious. I find it to be a herb-like smell.
