Anchusa azurea ‘Loddon Royalist’ full sun

“Of deep glorious color” are the words Graham Stuart Thomas, legendary author and horticulturalist, uttered to describe the deep rich blue tint, vividly saturating large edible forget-me-not like blooms, and deeming ‘Loddon Royalist’ the bluest of them all! Selected more than 50 years ago at Britain’s Loddon Nursery, this garden-worthy Borage family member and Mediterranean denizen sprouts a stubble-surfaced dark green basal rosette below infamous white-ringed dimple-centered blossoms, which perch on lax stems and make a tasty culinary garnish. Verbascum ‘Gainsborough’ and Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’ are glowing companions for those ever-blue floral wonders, while light sandy or sharp draining soil plus a shearing right after the flowers have faded will ensure its long-lived vigor.

Blooms May–June

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 12"–18" wide. Zone 3/4.
