Strobilanthes

Strobilanthes attenuata full sun  partial shade

With Salvia-like blue-violet flowers gracing a soft looking bushy mound, Strobilanthes attenuata is found in northern India and is sadly rare in cultivation. Vividly colored, curved tubular blooms populate dense spikes for months, while opposite, fuzzy gray-green leaves line well branched stems. Mounding and widespreading, this attractive, easy-to-care-for perennial imparts cool, composed hues, just right for juxtaposing against the warm yellows of Rudbeckia paniculata.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 2' 0"–2-1/2' high x 3-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 9.

Strobilanthes attenuata (P-1323)
Each $7.50
