A distinctive perennial with showy indigo-blue flowers carried on tapering spikes up to 1' long. They are held just above the dense, bushy mounds of soft blue-green foliage. The blooms appear from mid to late spring, followed by 2-3" long, black seed pods which remain attractive well into winter. They can be dried for use in arrangements.
