Lovely even in shade

We planted one of these in almost full shade-- next to the house, facing north-- about 7 years ago. It's grown to about gutter height on our ranch house and is reliably covered in flowers (purple, though, as others have noted) right up till we have a strong frost. It also sends up LOTS of suckers-- a couple of them got away from my notice and now we have a clump of 3 trees! All around, a great purchase.

The plant has grown healthy from a pea size to 2 feet and I will be soon transfering it to the flower bed in my back yard. It has given me no trouble for too much care. The leaves just stay fine and I find it drought resistant too because many times being a mom of three isn't easy to water everyday. This plant even after two days of hot stays put.

Mine came out more lavander than blue. Might be the NC clay soil. Either or, the tiny plant I have can barely support huge flowers on it. It's just so pretty!

I planted one of these in my yard in Kentucky about 8 years ago and it did fabulously well. I'm buying another for the home I just got here in California. Hint: Dead-head the flowers and it will bloom profusely.

I planted it in the spring and it has only grown to about 8 in. However, it managed about 5 beautiful purple, not blue, blooms. I couldn't believe how large the blooms were even on such a tiny plant. I'm eager to see how big it will grow to in the coming years.
