Exotic looking, deciduous, architectural shrub with divided, pinnate leaves and purplish blue, fragrant flower spikes in May and June.  The flowers are rich in nectar and will attract bees and butterflies to the garden.  With time, this highly decorative shrub can form a dense thicket and is useful as a windbreak or informal hedge.  Perfect for a wild or jungle themed garden as well as a Mediterranean garden as it is drought tolerant.

Hardy Shrub
Height & Spread: 2.5 to 4m
Flowers: May to June 
Position: Sun or semi shade in any soil except very waterlogged.

Packet of 30 seeds 


Pre-Sowing Instructions: Soak in warm water for 12 hours or until seeds swell.

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year 2mm deep in moist, free-draining, quality seed compost. Propagate at 10-15C in a greenhouse, on a windowsill or in a coldframe outdoors in spring. Germination should take place in 30-120 days.  

Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated conditions.   Overwinter if necessary in a frost free place. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in late spring/early summer in a sunny or semi shaded position in any soil except very waterlogged.
