Native of southwest Europe

Physical Description
This species bears dome-shaped flower heads several inches across that are crowded with tiny, tubular amethyst or white flowers that look somewhat like the blooms of an allium. It has lance-shaped, toothed leaves in hues of cordovan purple or deep green brushed with plum highlights. It blooms over a long season. Though it is a perennial, blue throatwort performs wonderfully as an annual and blooms summer to fall. Plants grow to about 3 feet tall and wide

General Information

Trachelium caeruleum L. plants can often be found on mortars of walls of the historic centre of Braga, a city of north-western Portugal. These plants spontaneously colonize some ancient walls, but they are absent from others apparently similar in structure and conditions, as well as from modern areas

Cultivation: Provide neutral to slightly acidic, well-drained soil in full sun with some shade in the heat of the day

Propagation: Sow seed in a cold frame when ripe or at 55° to 60°F in spring, or where they are to bloom in late spring. Rooted cuttings may be overwintered in a protected place.
