This form of 'Bugle' forms spreading mats of glossy, evergreen leaves with broad cream variegation and a blush of magenta-pink. Spikes of deep blue flowers are formed in late spring and early summer. Apr-Jun. H10cm S60cm.
Easy to grow in sun or shade but is better in some shade to prevent leaf scorch. It provides good ground cover, especially if given a fertile soil that is not too dry and is a useful foliage plant for container planting. The flowers are loved by bees.
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.
