Ceratostigma plumbaginoides



Archive entry 13.10.13

3rd September 2010


Another one of the classic perennial plants that is getting a chance in the new herbaceous border. It has grown well and flowered through the latter part of summer. As autumn takes hold, the upper leaves have reddened, which adds contrast to the bright blue flowers.
The species is from China, and has long been grown in gardens although there is some uncertainty about when it was first introduced.
