The fleshy blue-green leaves with white mottling, spiral up the stem, transforming themselves into tighter packed, sea blue bracts - and then the finale - small clusters of rich purple/blue tubular, nodding flowers, which are cream inside and loved by bees. As an evergreen, Mediterranean native, give some protection during hard winters. Height: 60-75cm (24-30in).
