ANCHUSA capensis 'Blue Angel'
Blue Angel Bugloss, Cape Bugloss
Cape bugloss is an biennial or short-lived perennial that is a good choice for a dry, sunny locations in the garden. A native of South Africa, 'Blue Angel' bears summertime flowers of a deep ocean blue that appear on upright stems above coarsely textured lance-shaped foliage. Bees will frequent these cup-shaped flowers across the summer.
Grow 'Blue Angel' in full sun in a moist but perfectly draining soil. Trim off spent flower stems to encourage a second flowering cycle. It makes a good edging or low filler plant for sunny mixed beds, rockeries and borders. Plants may self-sow.
