This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Often considered to be one of the best and showiest blue forms, this plain leaved, deciduous plant produces compact clusters of rich, violet-blue flowers on upright stems throughout spring. More tolerant of sun than most, the contrast between the unspotted, dark green foliage and the flower colour is very striking.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps every three to five years after flowering or in autumn. Cut back plants affected by mildew to the ground, water and feed - the plant will regenerate and produce new leaves later in the year.
