  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, fertile, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: vigourous
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Sturdy stems of deep blue summer flowers, turning blue-purple with age, appear in early summer above rosettes of mid-green leaves. This large blue alkanet makes a striking and long-lasting statement in a sunny border and does not need staking. The flowers are attractive to bees, too.

  • Garden care: Anchusas dont like wet soil. Deadhead after flowering to encourage a second flush of flowers and in early autumn cut the stems back down to the ground.

      A:

      Hello there
      Yes you could, or you can plant them now into the garden, -these plants are fully hardy.
      As a general rule plants that are grown in containers can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or the spring before the temperatures start to rise. Hope this helps.
