Green leaves and rich blue flower heads.
This was given to us from a Scottish nursery long ago and has always been a great performer with its striking blue flowers on fine stems. We have tried many times to grow from seed but you instantly lose the blue so all plants originate from that one original specimen. It works in moist and drought conditions so ideal for alpine gardens in most areas of the UK.
Hardiness: Fully Hardy
When this bulbous plant has finished flowering it will go into dormancy. Leave the foliage and flowers on till totally died back.
