Product information "Buglossoides purpurocaerulea"

Purple gromwell is a ground covering perennial that is very fast growing. It can grow up to 30 cm high, while its shoots lay loosely on the ground. Once the shoot tip gets into contact with the soil it roots very quickly. Grape-like, gentian blue flowers appear above the lanceolate, rough, hairy leaves appear from April until well into July. Since this ground cover is very undemanding, it can cope with almost any soil situation and can be planted in both sun and shade. Only locations with extreme waterlogging it cannot tolerate. Purple gromwell can be planted in larger perennial beds as well as near shrubs. It has a particularly good effect near foxgloves, bellflowers and astilbes.
