They produce a profusion of blue bell-shaped flowers on branched stems over a long period from June to September and rosettes of heart-shaped mid-green leaves. A useful little perennial for filling in gaps.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. During the growing season water freely and deadhead with scissors to prolong flowering.
