  • Plant for chalk soil

  • Plant for sun

Rich, deep purplish-blue, lipped, tubular flowers are backed by a ring of black sepals on strong, branched stems. The foliage is bright green and has a wonderful aniseed scent. The flowers are a magnet for pollinating insects. Makes a beautiful specimen plant in a container or the open border.

Prefers a well-drained soil in full sun. Requires a sheltered site in cold, exposed gardens until established but has proved hardy on the nursery which is quite exposed. Protect from frost until established. Remove spent blooms to encourage continual flowering.

Height: 18 - 36 icnhes / 45 - 90cm

Spread: 18 - 30 inches / 45 - 75cm

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
