My second order of this plant
Rieke family from TN wrote on September 24, 2018

We have loved the Longwood Blues. Planted in horrible dry clay soil around a foundation and the 3 plants have thrived. Tall and beautiful. Only watering once a week. Just received 2 additional Longwood Blue plants to be planted this autumn and the plants are strong, healthy, and packed with bountiful root balls. Look forward to adding them to the foundation plantings. Thank you.

I planted five of these in Strawberry, AZ, which gets snow and down to -8 in winter at times. They were beautiful plants that took very little care once established. We had droughts and they were drought tolerant. Will definitely try these again in Nevada.

Great plant to grow in Georgia, north of Atlanta. Never sick or sorry, tolerated the dry weather and red clay. Beautiful blue added to the landscape.
