It can fill in spaces where other plants struggle to grow - even under Black Walnut trees whose chemical Juglone prevents most plant life from surviving. Short spikes of blue flowers rise above the foliage late in Spring. Deer and rabbit resistant, it thrives in Zones 4-9 in all types of lighting and the flowers attract bees and hummingbirds.
