Uses Notes: 

Late season color for hedges, perennial or shrub borders, specimen and containers. This is a nice addition to the mixed border, and can also be used as a specimen plant for late summer interest. Excellent for hedging.

Maintenance Notes: 

Grows in any soil unless it is either really wet or dry. Prune in early spring if desired. Can be heavily pruned, but this is not usually necessary. Prefers medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.

  • I planted an entire row of these, as they were advertised as good for a hedge and deer resistant. The deer ate them all down to a single bare twig. Pretty sure they are all dead.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

  • This plant is beautiful. It had buds on it when I planted it and the plant started blooming. The flowers are gorgeous. HOWEVER, this plant is not deer resistant at all. Mine has been eaten down to the soil by deer. So now I've lost a shrub. Very disappointed about that.

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

  • I love this plant. I have it in blue and also in maroon. Its 5feet tall and has beautiful blue to purple flowers as they fade. I have several against the southern fence. I look foward to them blooming every year

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