Prized for its long blooming marine blue flowers in the summer on deer resistant, tidy plants. Perfect for any sunny spot that needs a burst of color. Cut back after flowering for even more blooms. Can tend toward biennial, but northern gardeners should let seed fall to ensure future plants.
Tolerates poor, well-drained soil once established and works well in containers needing a vertical accent. Butterflies love Anchusa and will visit your garden all summer if spent flowers are cut back to allow for rebloom all season.
