Heavenly Blue is a favourite variety of bluebeard. It has profusion of purple-blue flowers at the end of summer that attract bumble bees and butterflies. The leaves are deep green on the upper side and silvery blue-green beneath. They have an interesting scent which recalls cooking herbs.

The shrub grows fast and has to be pruned hard every spring to about one third of previous year’s growth to encourage strong, new branching that will bloom even more profusely. It forms quite an airy bush, not so compact while keeping a nice rounded shape.

Bluebeard is soil tolerant, however, it does best in fertile, very well-drained soil in full sun. Fully hardy to about -25 (USDA zone 5b).
