Year 5 coming up and fabulous in NC

Zone 7 and these bushes do not disappoint. We rooted and moved some in the first year and our house has them on 3 sides now. Different amounts of sun delay the bushes in the side yard so we get even longer blooming overall and the bees love them. Really glad we started with 3 bushes. Every other year we cut them down to 6 inches to b Let them grow back strong and avoid a scale disease we started having in year 3 and year 4 was the best year ever.

I planted two of these plants in April 2018. It is now August 2018. They are now turning purple and have little flowers on them I am very happy with these plants.

I planted five of these in Strawberry, AZ, which gets snow and down to -8 in winter at times. They were beautiful plants that took very little care once established. We had droughts and they were drought tolerant. Will definitely try these again in Nevada.

Great plant to grow in Georgia, north of Atlanta. Never sick or sorry, tolerated the dry weather and red clay. Beautiful blue added to the landscape.
