Trachystemon orientalis


Availability : Available

Description :

Abraham-Isaac-Jacob plant

Trachystemon orientalis looks like a borage, behaves like Symphytum caucasicum and is a raptidly-spreading ground cover for partial shade natural gardens. Plant it at the back of a garden around a compost heap, under shrubs or trees, etc.

Trachystemon orientalis has large generous leaves rather like Hosta and whimsical azure blue trumpet flowers. It will settle and naturalise in the garden without being too invasive.

Plant on its own or mixed in with spring-flowering bulbs. Narcissus poeticus, Leucojum, etc.

Grow in ordinary soil in the sun or partial shade. Can be really spectacular in moist to damp soil.

Maintenance: cut back the clumps at the end of the winter before the new foliage appears.
