Buy Andromeda polifolia 'Blue Lagoon' bog rosemary: Thrives in moist, acidic soils

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, acid, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Originating from peat bogs, this hardy, low-growing evergreen shrub forms a dense dome of blue-grey foliage, which in late spring and early summer is topped with soft pink, bell-shaped flowers. With its common name of 'bog rosemary', this little gem will thrive in reliably moist, acidic soils, and makes an interesting addition to shadier rockeries or borders.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted leaf mould each year around the base of the plant in early spring.

Andromeda polifolia Blue Lagoon

5.0 1


I have a small recently constructed wildlife pond. I would like to provide shelter for frogs (etc) in winter as well as summer. I would like some low growing evergreen bog plants for this. I note that Andromeda polifolia is evergreen which is what I now need to add. Three questions: 1) Can this grow and thrive alongside astilbe and hosta in a pond side bog garden area? 2) can I cut it back to keep it low growing (15 - 20cm) without cutting into hardwood and killing it? 3) any suggestions for additional evergreen bog garden plants, please. Many thanks.
