Product Description

A lovely shrub bringing colour to the garden in late summer and early autumn when many other flowers have gone over. Masses of disc-shaped, vivid cobalt-blue flowers appear from August to October, and in autumn, the leaves turn a rich russet-red.

It's best in towards the front of a sheltered, sunny border in soil that does not get too dry.
