(Hardy blue-flowered leadwort)
(Award of Garden Merit)
Originating from China
Stunning, rich, cobalt blue flowers, opening from spiky red flower buds cover this low growing perennial in late summer. Handsome leaves on red stems give it interest earlier in summer and the super red tones of the foliage in autumn carry the season of interest through into October.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Will tolerate dry soil once established.
