A shorter, compact variety that is full and vigorous in the landscape,
with upright stems that resist flopping. One of the earliest to bloom,
with midsummer lavender-blue flowers and smoky purple calyxes that hold
well into fall. Attracts bees, but repels browsing bug pests. Finely
textured aromatic foliage is a complementary soft gray-green. Great in
mass plantings or as a single accent. Ht 86 cm (34 in
