Grow me instead of Blueweed

This clump-forming perennial is a low maintenance plant. It prefers well-drained soils and full sun. With regular watering, they can bloom throughout the summer. You can also extend the flowering season by removing the spent blooms. They produce white to violet blue flowers that are attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
