Deinanthe caerulea


Deinanthe

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.172.900


An unusual and seldom-encountered Chinese woodland perennial. This forms a low, slow spreading mound of felty dark-green leaves, bearing clusters of lavender-blue blossoms in early summer. Petals are shaped like individual Hydrangea flowers, the blooms appearing early to midsummer. Best in rich, moist woodland soil and dappled shade, away from strong winds. Would combine beautifully with dwarf Hosta and hardy ferns. Possibly hardy to Zone 4 or colder. Keep out of hot afternoon sun. Sometimes sold as the selection 'Blue Wonder' but that is merely a marketing name.
