Description

This shrub grows in a low mound (it’s only three feet tall!) that’s great for filling up a border with beautiful pale blue flowers nestled among silvery foliage beginning in late summer with secondary blooms continuing in the fall. It needs full sun with consistently moist, well- drained soil to bring out those honey scented blooms that the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds adore. It’s good to cut the plant back to twelve inches in the spring to allow for the plant to replenish itself for a new season by summer.
