Well-suited to the middle of the flower border. All colors in this series are similar in size, bloom time and vigor, making them easy for growers to schedule. These vigorous cultivars will fill out a container nicely with their dark green, mildew-resistant foliage, but won’t overrun the garden.
Lavender-blue flowers are held by attractive, purple bracts. A breakthrough shorter height for this color.
