|Fast growing perennial. Leaves are whitish gray to medium green, lance shaped and 3" long. Valued for its dense, long lasting, violet-blue lipped flower spikes. Outstanding in mass plantings, borders or containers. Thrives in full sun in well drained soil. 'Mina' and 'Victoria' are smaller cultivars reaching only 12" to 18" respectively. A welcomed blue addition that blends or complements just about any color in the border.
