This is one of those wonderful plants that will help extend the season of interest well into the autumn. It starts to produce its clusters of rich cobalt blue flowers in late summer, that soar over a bed of brilliant golden / chartreuse aromatic leaves; the flowers will really help get the garden buzzing as they bring in lots of bees and butterflies. They also offer a dazzling contrast to the yellow-green leaves. An award-winning, well behaved deciduous shrub that is noted for its ease of growth.
