Design IdeasMakes a fine addition to mixed shrub borders for texture, and blue floral accent. Superior choice for drought resistant landscapes as structural material and background. Tall enough to create an informal hedge or visual screen for privacy year around. Naturalizes well in the west and blends with other natives from that region in a wild garden setting. Shade tolerance makes an exceptional shrub for sunny spots in woodlands. Superior plant for framing rock waterfalls and fountains in warm winter climates.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
