Growth Rate: Moderate
Special Feature: Dwarf Plant
Foliage Color: Gray-green
Bloom Time: Summer
Flower Color: Blue
Garden Style: Cottage
Design Ideas: A delightful blue flowered perennial that belongs in the mid to front of the traditional border. May also be spotted into shrub borders. Makes an excellent groundcover for high profile points in foundation planting such as entries. Great see-through for inside of white picket fences. Mass at the edges of tree canopies where sun shines as transition from full sun to shade planting. Spreading habit makes good nesting plant for boulders or at edges of flagstone walks. Also makes a fine cut flower.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
