A beautiful, early and profusely flowering variety. Violet-blue flowers with a contrasting sheaf of white stamens and staminodes in the center, followed, during summer and autumn, by decorative silky seed heads. A very hardy plant with low requirements. Ideal for growing over fences, walls, or scrambling over rocks and old stumps. Particularly useful for planting near small trees and coniferous or deciduous shrubs. Makes good ground cover.
