Product description

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection in cold areas)

    In May and June, this low-growing, evergreen shrub is smothered in fluffy, powder-blue flowers. It is easy to grow and care for, and forms a natural mound, so looks best towards the front of a mixed border with a backdrop of larger shrubs.

  • Garden care: Each year after the plant has flowered, take out any dead, diseased or damaged shoots. Apply a 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in autumn.
