Kate,I didn't think the colour would be so intense...it looked very pale on the label.

It is a lovely plant; I've had it in every garden I've owned. In this one it's excelled itself in year 4 - it's now 1.5m wide and full of insect life. I wouldn't be without it. Yours is obviously very happy in this spot!

It looks wonderful, a lovely blue, and it seems to have settled well into it's place :)

I've never been able to grow these ...
