Even after gardening and running a nursery for years, I sometimes have to put on my thinking cap to remember what those numbers stand for on fertilizer. I found this nifty little piece of info and thought it might be helpful for others.
All fertilizer labels have three bold numbers. The first number is the amount of nitrogen (N), the second number is the amount of phosphate (P2O5) and the third number is the amount of potash (K2O). These three numbers represent the primary nutrients (nitrogen(N) - phosphorus(P) - potassium(K)).

It's not a perennial here (zone 6B) but I winter it over in a sunny window. Easy to root from cuttings too!

Look who is sharing the hummingbird feeder! Ever since I put up the feeders this little woodpecker has been drinking the nectar. The hummers don't seem to mind either. They all drink together happily. Even the big ladder back woodpecker drinks occasionally. I've never had this happen in all the years I've fed hummers.
