Description

A rarely-seen-or-offered, frost-hardy sub-shrub with deep green, highly aromatic foliage, and, from June onwards, sizeable, bright blue, two-lipped flowers in profusion. An absolutely perfect plant for a hot, sheltered, sunny spot, although it does prefer a bit of moisture in the soil.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
