Imagine a stand of Irene tumbling over a low wall or spreading across the dry, sun-soaked ground in your garden! This tough little garden gem is one of the most ornamental plants around, yet there is no beating its usefulness when sheer coverage (and plenty of color!) is needed. This is the perfect plant for garden walls, pots, banks, or a dry, sunny patch of ground in your garden.
A superb groundcover for hot, dry locations, its habit is low and mounding, only 12 to 18 inches high but spreading vigorously 18 to 36 inches a year. In summer, deep blue-violet flowers arise in great masses. The rich color stays true even in the hottest days, refusing to bleach or fade.
Very deer and pest resistant, Irene™ is a long-lived joy in any well-drained garden soil. Best performance is in full sun. Plant Irene where you crave gorgeous color and thick coverage. The rich violet blue flowers bloom in summer and stay vibrant through heat and drought. Zones 7-10.
