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 that most, the contrast between theunspotted, 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.
