Ceratostigma plumbaginoides (also known as Blue Leadwort), is most often grown as a ground cover or edging plant along the front of a border. The foliage makes a low green mound through the summer and then bursts into colour from August to October, w hen the brilliant blue starry flowers appear. In autumn, the foliage begins to turn shades of bright scarlet and finally maroon red. Ceratostigma plumbaginoides' compact, bushy habit means it is suited to patio pots and the border. Attractive to butt erflies. Height 50cm, spread 30cm. 9cm pot grown plants supplied.
