A dense growth habit, disease resistance, and nonstop blooms are just some of Sapphires many virtues. The large, fluffy, lilac blue flowers with yellow centers create a cloud of color.

  • This is a great plant to put in your landscape. It's grows so big and is covered in flowers during the fall - only the nastiest frost will kill off the blooms. Warning - it is invasive and will grow even more robust in year 2.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Last year, my 3 were beautiful! This year, not so much, most of each plant is not surviving. I won't plant again.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
