Product description

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: poor or moderately fertile, moist, well-drained neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Lilac-blue summer flowers appear on short spikes, fading to white, among grey-green leaves with narrow red margins and veining when young. This small, spreading, evergreen shrub makes an attractive low, informal hedge or edging plant for a mixed border. In an urban or coastal site, it needs protection from cold, drying winds.

  • Garden care: Needs minimal pruning. Remove misplaced or frost damaged branches in late spring.

“Fleshy grey-green leaves primly edged in red - particularly splendid in winter light - and lilac-mauve flowers aplenty in summer”

Val Bourne - Garden Writer
