Quick Overview:

In its first year, ‘Purrsian Blue’ forms a small, perfectly rounded, densely branched clump of tiny, green leaves.  In year two, the plant maintains its compact mounding habit but nearly doubles its spread to just over two feet across.

This is a very floriferous selection whose flower power is amplified by its having its flowers spaced closely together on the stems.  Periwinkle blue flowers are coddled by dark purple calyxes just above the aromatic foliage from early summer into early fall. ‘Purrisan Blue’ has everything today’s gardeners are looking for: a low maintenance, drought tolerant, deer resistant, long blooming perennial that looks great all season.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Thrives in dry soils and is very tolerant of drought. Somewhat intolerant of the heat and humidity of the deep South, however, and appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Shear flower spikes after initial flowering to promote continued bloom.
