Beautiful, rare, fast and easy to grow, this South African perennial is popular in its home country, why not here? Mostly unbranched, upright stems and attractive rich green heart-shaped leaves create a dense 30” x 3’ shrub-like form. Conspicuously displayed outside the foliage, plentiful good-sized 3” lavender-blue flowers highlighted by a bright golden-yellow throat appear mid-Spring thru Summer . Happiest in part shade and rich soil, it’s lovely in the foreground of roses, trees and taller shrubs. Deciduous. Cut old foliage to the ground in Winter. Hummingbirds!
