Description

Anchusa azurea is known by the common names garden anchusa and Italian bugloss (or just "bugloss"). This hardy herbaceous perennial may reach 1.5 m (4.9 ft) tall and 60 cm (24 in) wide. It has straight lance-shaped leaves and petite tubular flowers about 15 millimeters across with five bright violet-blue petals. These flowers, which typically appear in May–July, attract bees and other pollinators. This species is native to Europe, western Asia, and eastern Maghreb.

In the US it is suitable for hardiness zones 3–8, though hardy to zone 10. It grows best in full sun with good drainage, and is drought tolerant once established.

Type: Hardy perennial, hardy biennial

Hardiness zones: 3-10

Height: 100cm, 39"

Location: Sun to part shade

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: This plant is easy to germinate. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. For best results, obtain a sterile seed-start mix, and place the seeds on the surface of the pre-moistened growing medium. Water in, and keep moist until germination.
