This plant is a slow grower but well worth the wait. Lovely shade of light blue. Flowers about 3 inches large cover this bush every spring. In my zone of 8b it does not have to be mulched in the wintertime.

This year the lone roaming fawn didn't touch our 'Bluebird', so I'm happy to report that it bloomed beautifully. It's an easy to care for plant and requires nothing special. It gets sun from early morning to about 2 PM. I cut it back hard each spring and it always bounces back great.

I've had this plant for years and never had trouble with the deer eating it until this year. So sad to see it eaten down to a foot tall!
