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
  • Depth of water: 0-10cm (0-4in)
  • Soil: deep, fertile, moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This adaptable perennial loves moist soils, so it can either be grown along the edges of a pond or in a bog garden. Spreading by creeping rhizomes to form a low clump of attractive leafy cover, it comes into its own in early summer when the sprays of small, bright blue flowers appear.

  • Garden care: Plant straight out into reliably moist soil, or potted into an aquatic planting basket (using aquatic compost) and sink into shallow water. Divide overly large or congested clumps in spring.
