Anchusa, Azure (Anchusa azurea), packet of 20 seeds
Family: Borage (Boraginacea)
Hardy to Zone 3 to 9
Herbaceous perennial native to Italy. This species is noted for its intense, royal purple flowers, as big as quarters. Flowers edible. These plants are extraordinary on the landscape, but like many Boraginacea they do get rangy after flowering. At this point, cut them back to the base and they will gather their resources and go for another flowering cycle. Sow seed in spring. Easy one for beginners, satisfactory plant for the advanced gardener. Prefers full sun and fast draining soils, little fertility. Highly, highly recommended.
20 Seeds/pkt., Open Pollinated, Untreated, NO GMO’s
