A variety that's highly regarded for hedging, ornamental and mass planting; its contrasting dark blue corollas and purple-violet bracts are a real feature. Covered with lavender-blue flower spikes for many months in summer, its foliage is still a pleasing feature when it's not flowering. Long stems; great for picking.
Bright spring and summer flower display.
Gardens and borders. A good choice for low hedging and picked for indoor use.
Sunny and well-drained. Will handle areas cooler than Zone 9 as long as it's not subject to both cold and damp conditions.
Clip to about two-thirds size after flowering to maintain shape and vigour. Removing spent flowers will prolong display.
