Anchusa, Azure (Anchusa azurea)
Hardiness: All Zones
Herbaceous perennial native to Italy. This species is noted for its intense, royal purple flowers, as big as quarters. They are extraordinary on the landscape, but like many boraginacea they do get rangy after flowering. At this point, cut them back to the base and they will gather their resources and go for another flowering cycle. Prefers full sun and fast draining soils, little fertility. Highly, highly recommended.
