5 plug plants

  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, slightly acid, sandy soil
  • Rate of growth: average

    Blue, pea-like flowers with white standards that are sometimes streaked with purple, open from the base of the flower spike over several weeks from early summer and create a handsome, yet elegant effect. The fresh, green foliage forms a neat mound that maintains a good shape through summer.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear and deadhead the faded blooms to encourage a second flush of flowers.
