Trachelium caeruleum | Black Knight
This absolutely spectacular flower opens with large, dense, cloudy sprays of thousands of small, fragrant, intensely violet flowers, which appear in early summer and are bee magnets. Unlike the commonly available varieties, this relatively new and exceptional form has dark foliage with purple veins. Looks stunning when planted with our Nicotiana langsdorffii which is lime green which offsets the stunning dark foliage and the intensely violet flowers.
A fantastic cut flower that lasts extremely well in the vase so an excellent choice for the border or your cutting garden. Enjoys full sun but ours is in partial shade and thriving. Whilst it is considered to be perennial, in some areas with cooler temperatures it is best treated as an annual.
Height 90cm x 50cm Wide
