Fully hardy
Herbaceous Perennial
 
Native to Europe, North Africa and into Asia. Often found growing along roadsides or stony hills and being very happy in poorer or drier soils. Flowering from May - July, this plant has upright stems to over a metre and from a strong root-stock. Likes a deep root run and needs a bit of space to bulk up. 
 
Anchusa is closely related to Brunnera and some similarities can be seen, this is a plant that provides some of the richest blues for early summer, flowers are borne on branching spikes and benefit from staking.
