Description

True blues are difficult to find in plants, but Anchusa 'Loddon Royalist’ excels in its incredible, deep blue flowers which commence flowering in May, sparkling against the acid yellow foliage of the spring garden. The flowers turn deeper purple as they mature and are held on upright, loose sprays above rosettes of hairy foliage. For a lively colour contrast, pair Anchusa ‘Loddon Royalist’ with an early flowering Geum such as ‘Lady Stratheden’. This Anchusa is a great choice for a cottage wildlife garden as the blooms provide an early banquet for pollinators. The flowers are also edible - perfect for freezing into ice cubes or sprinkling over salads! Good for cutting too.

Height: 90cm (35in). Spread: 60cm (24in).

How to Grow
Grow Anchusa in rich fertile, well drained soil which remains reliably moist. Choose a position in sun or semi shade.
More Info
Deadhead faded flowers to encourage new blooms to be produced. Anchusa will self seed freely. If seedlings are not required, deadhead blooms as they fade. Cut back faded flower stems in autumn. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
