Grower Information:

Makes a big impact with a thicker leaf, bigger bloom and darker stem than ‘Black & Blue’. Tough as nails – it thrives in heat, drought and humidity. Very fast to finish and easy to grow, requiring very little attention. Desirable deep blue color against a black stem stands out in every landscape or container. Ideal for 4-in.
