Striking, blue-grey linear foliage and in summer, bears bluish spikelets that fade to cream. Jun-Aug. H100cm S60cm.
Best grown in a sunny situation and free-draining soil. An easy plant to grow, tolerating poor soil, drought and coastal conditions. It is also reputed to be invasive but we have not found it to be unduly so.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
