This is a beautiful little evergreen perennial Australian plant that can add a splash of blue to your garden. It flowers through spring and into early summer and is best suited to rockeries, raised beds and containers. Planting in these situations will give it the excellent drainage it requires to thrive. It can be shortlived in more humid climates such as Sydney and Brisbane. Trimming off the spent flower stems in summer is pretty much the only maintenance required.
