This perennial tolerates drought and blazing sun!

12-inch dwarf plant blooms in early summer, then repeats!
Masses of very long, pencil-thin, vibrantly colorful bloomspikes arise on this perennial Sage! The deep blue blooms are richly colorful on upright 18-inch plants, blooming heavily in early summer and then repeating their fine show later in the season. A spectacular source of dark, intense color and narrow, vertical form, 'East Friesland' is a wonder in the front of the border, and combines well with Shasta Daisies. The flowers attract butterflies, and are superb for cutting.

Space plants 15 inches apart in the garden, and divide every 3 to 4 years. Not fussy about soil, it flourishes in blazing sun, tolerating drought and heat. Zones 4-9.
