This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Vibrant, violet-blue flowers with upright standards and a purple-veined, creamy-white base to each fall, appear from early to midsummer just above the slender, strap-shaped foliage. Wonderful when mixed with pale blues, violets and rich plum tones.

  • Garden care: Plant in soil that has been improved with well-rotted manure or garden compost and do not allow to dry out, particularly as the plant is getting established. If planted in a container, it will need dividing and repotting every couple of years in spring.
  • Harmful if eaten
