Gorgeous cobalt blue with black blooms emerge from black whorls along the tall flower spikes, rising from the lush, green, aromatic foliage. Excellent for adding dark, dramatic contrast to any garden. Sensational season-long, heat-loving color for sunny beds and borders. An herbaceous perennial in mild winter regions; treat as an annual elsewhere.

Thrives in loose, organically rich, moist, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove spent flower spikes to encourage prolific continuous bloom. Where grown as a perennial, cut back to 3 in. above soil line and fertilize before growth emerges in early spring.
