Bright blue flower spikes.
Resembling rosemary with longer foliage this deciduous plant is great for dry sunny areas. Long tubular blue flowers turn into see heads that rattle in the wind these can be left on dead foliage through winter but cut back before new growth starts in spring. Perfect for the alpine rock garden, scree beds, walls, crevices, containers and alpine house.
In autumn cut back all the dead foliage. New growth will appear in spring.
