Dark pink or blue flowers in summer. Prune to shape after flowering (rarely needed.) Protect overwinter in north. Compact. Disease resistant. Soil pH will affect bloom color.
Great landscape plant adds a dash of bright color. Good in groupings or masses, in a perennial or shrub borders, as a specimen, screen or hedge. Use in mixed containers, containers, and as a cut flower.
Best in well-drained soil that has been amended with peat moss, leaf mold or compost. Flourishes by the ocean. Pruning is usually not needed, but may be pruned immediately after flowering. Prefers moist soils. May need winter protection in northern areas. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application. Flower color is affected by pH. For blue flowers, the soil must be more acidic and for pink flowers the soil must be more alkaline. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color.
Vibrant flowers on a very compact plant.
The smallest of the Cityline series, Vienna is a lovely little plant with dark blue (or pink) flowers. The blooms emerge with an attractive cream-colored throat and remain large and showy even as they age. Flower color will vary depending on soil pH and aluminum availability. Since it is a compact plant, it does not need pruning. Cityline Vienna is a great choice for container gardens and foundation plantings.

Same beautiful flowers, but the plant is small and compact and doesn't overpower the space it's in. Plant them all around in your beds as accents.Louise ButlerSouth CarolinaUnited States5 years ago
