A tall perennial with branching stems of the most joyous deep blue flowers in summer - such truly blue flowers are uncommon in the plant world. This cultivar has a sturdy growth habit so seldom needs staking. Grow in fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Doesn't like excessive winter wet so not suitable for heavy clay, unless you mound the soil up with a generous quantity of pea shingle. Eventual flowering height: 1m (3ft)


Buying bare root perennials is a very effective and economical way of introducing new plants into your garden. They have good root systems which have not been confined to a pot and have enjoyed all the benefits of being grown in natural soil and wether conditions so they will transplant well into your garden and establishment is often better and quicker than with pot-grown equivalents. Bare root plants are only available during the dormant season, typically between November and March

Plants should ideally be planted straight away if the ground is moist and not frozen. If you cannot do this, keep them in a cool shady place, insuring the roots are kept moist but not sitting in water. Either wrap the root balls in damp newspaper or temporarily heel them in to a patch of ground and water in. Smaller clumps will benefit from being potted on first and grown on in a sheltered location until they can be planted out.
