Orginating from Western China. A lovely smaller, prostrate plant, that seems to struggle to decide if it is a shrub or a herbaceous plant! Whichever, it is delightful in whatever location you decide to use it. Dark green leaves take on a reddy hue in autumn and the glorious rich blue flowers are produced freely from mid summer until well into autumn. This plant can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden or a container. If planting in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 5-6 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
