Notes

Notes
ยป Small evergreen shrub with sky blue blooms over a long period, from late Autumn to late Summer. Dwarf wood stemmed shrub prized for massed display of small sky blue blowers. Grey-green foliage. Branches tend to be brittle. Plants sometimes spread by suckers. Suited to very free-draining soils or potting mix in full sun. Tolerant of sandy to clay loams, light frosts, hard pruning, light dapped shade and hot dry sites. Tip prune young plants regularly. Light application of slow-release fertiliser may be beneficial. Mulch well using wood chips or pebbles. Water over extended dry periods by soaking during the cool part of the day.
