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).
