This lovely perennial has the most beautiful blue flowers that have been described as being like a school of swimming fishes which I completely can see! From a base of lacy green leaves, the upright stems of flowers with dangling tubular flowers are held.

Whilst best in areas with cooler temperatures, hotter areas will find that it goes dormant in mid-summer although my plants have not done that and we have had a very hot summer.  But as this can occur I make sure that I plant it to accommodate the fact that it may go dormant. It does prefer a shaded position and some consistent moisture, but a well drained soil. A covering of mulch helps with retaining moisture.

Plants can be easily divided in spring and ultimately spreads slowly to form a pretty patch of blue.  Flowers from early summer and often into late March.  Both the flowers and the foliage are great in floral work. After flowering, trimming back will ensure compact growth.
