BORDERLINE HARDY  PERENNIAL

HEIGHT AND SPREAD 1M+

FL. JUNE -NOVEMBER

One of the most beautiful blues in a family in which there a lot of contenders! - this stunning  plant from Oaxaca in Mexico has huge vine leaf shaped  furry leaves - hence vitifolia - and then sprays of the most intense blue flowers. Closely related to s. patens -  that other blue prima donna.

Hardiness - again I would say -3 in a well drained  sunny spot  in southern UK but these plants also produce a tuber when mature so that can be lifted and stored like a dahlia. Or you can root some 'insurance' cuttings.... If in any doubt over winter frost free.
