Perennial Forget-Me-Nots.......PLANTS.......Anchusa azurea 'Dropmore' strain

Flower Color: Blue
Type: Short lived perennial, best treated as re-seeding biennial.
Height: 48" to 60"
Light: Full Sun, or afternoon shade
Zone: 4-8
Water: Average
Soil: Average to Rich
Maintenance: Cut back unsightly flower stalks when finished blooming.
Other info: This plant has very course heavy foliage. But I find my eye is so drawn to the beautiful azure blue flowers that I don't pay much attention to the foliage until after the bloom season. I used the flowers in short-flowered cut flower arrangements combined with yellow agyranthemum and they were gorgeous. The plants bloomed profusely for two weeks and stood straight and tall, but after that they began flopping over. So I would suggest caging the plants with tomato cages at the beginning of the season.
