A hardy attractive shrub which forms mounds of densely massed spreading stems carrying matt green leaves with purple tinged edges. Masses of blue flowers cover the shrub from summer to mid-autumn. Griffithii is more 'Wirey' than Ceratostigma plumabginoides with smaller leaves.
Prefers a sunny to partly shaded position in moist, well drained soil. Frost and drought tolerant once established. Trim after flowering if desired, otherwise they are very low maitenance, as they tend to be pest and disease resistant.
This low growing evergreen shrub is ideal for rockeries and perennial borders. Most effective when mass planted as a dense garden bed filler.
