    Design IdeasThis shrub can grow to rather large proportions in the shade where it simultaneously bears flowers in white, lavender and purple. It is a rare source of blue tones among tropical plants and is a reliable performer in all but the hottest climates. Grow as foundation planting between windows and along a wall on north or east exposures. Gang plants into a background for a shady fountain or small pocket garden. Use next to doorways or at gates to appreciate it up close. Grows rather well under the canopies of large conifers.
