Native to Europe and west-central Asia (selection)


CHECK AVAILABILITY

For the formal garden, designed meadow, or city scape.  Purple flowers attract pollinators, butterflies and the occasional hummingbird.  Deer, rabbit and drought resistant, the foliage is a blue green and the branching creates a plant 12 inches tall and up to 24 inches wide.  Flower stems rise above the foliage and flowers all summer into fall with deadheading.  Lovely as a cut flower.
