Any damage to shoots is removed by hard annual pruning, which keeps plants flowering prolifically and prevents a bare base from developing. The bushes are dome-shaped, with new stems arching gracefully under the weight of the dense, deep blue flower clusters, which stand out well against the soft green foliage. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Just as expected
Once again plants delivered quickly and well packed in straw. They are in good condition and give confidence to order more.
