In spring, 'Catlins Giant' produces tall spikes of small, blue-violet flowers that rise above the foliage, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies.


Will grow best in a moist well drained soil in a sunny or partly shaded position. ‘Catlins Giant’ is a hardy plant once established, and will tolerate cold conditions. Protect from snails and slugs. It will benefit from an annual feed in Spring with a good quality fertiliser.

Landscape Uses
