Why we love it

With iconically dark, glossy and scallop-shaped leaves, she'll bloom short spikes of deep-blue flowers in Spring and Summer.

  • Perfect to plant now: all our plants are perfect to plant now and we select perennials, so they'll live on year after year
  • Low maintenance: she's happy in everything from full sun to full shade, although her leaves will grow greener in shadier spots
  • Rich delight: her purple leaves create a rich display throughout the year
  • Great for containers and ground cover: she's only small, but she can spread across open ground up to 90cm and thrives in container displays!
  • Pollinator-friendly: Black Scallop is well-known for attracting bees, butterflies and other pollinators!
