Deep purple flowers appear on short spikes from midsummer to late autumn, among masses of dark green, lance shaped leaves with red margins. Long-flowering, tough and easy to grow, this spreading, rounded, evergreen shrub will flourish in a wide range of conditions, and once established, is drought-tolerant, too. Plant it en masse along a fence or path, or to add structure to a mixed, sunny border, and underplant it with contrasting, drought-tolerant foliage plants such as Bergenia. The flowers are a magnet for bees and butterflies. Our plants are supplied as 2cm dia plugs to plant on in a pot or plant directly in your garden. Dig a small hole, put the plug with the roots in the ground and press soil around. Water well. Please contact us for any other gardening advice.
