Be the next gardener dazzled by the memorable blooms of this ‘Skylover’ Anagallis, which is commonly known as ‘Blue Pimpernel’.
Pretty cornflower-blue flowerheads grow in abundance from spreading stems to create a carpet of flowers, perfect for rockery or alpine gardens, adding interest throughout the summer.
The colourful display on each flower needs to be seen to be believed – five blue-purple petals brighten to lilac, then white towards the centre, acting as a bed for a handful of yellow central stamens.
This classy perennial boasts a low, branching habit, ideal for drifting at the very front of borders, or even for filling out a hanging basket, thanks to the healthy and unique foliage.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as a set of six plug plants, ready to be grown on before planting out.
Plant each plug approximately 20cm apart to give each room to grow.
