Description

This low-growing plant produces flowers so electric blue they seem to glow. It has good scent and performs well in moist or shady conditions. New foliage appears a feathery purple, slowly turning to green. Excellent in a woodland border or to brighten a gloomy area.

Care Tips

Will usually go dormant in hot, dry summers. Cut back in summer if foliage goes straggly. Water regularly in dry periods.
