Mounding – I Thrive in Shade

I feature incredibly intense aqua-blue, lightly fragrant flowers which are set against blue green deeply divided foliage.

I flower from autumn through to spring. My flowers are a magnet for bees and other beneficial garden insects.

I naturally develop into a rounded mound that looks elegant year round.

Hardy I am a good choice for shady locations and to brighten darker corners.

I make a great potted specimen and my flowers can be cut to be enjoyed indoors.
