Beautiful silvery blue foliage with an herbal aroma. The lavender-blue flowers appear in July and bring the pollinators with them! This variety is shorter and has a more upright habit than the straight species therefore making it less prone to flopping in the landscape.

BloomsBlooms: July – September
ExposureExposure: Full sun
TypeType: Herbaceous Perrenial

Pollinator-friendly, drought tolerant, and rabbit resistant.
