Outta the Blue™

No picture can capture the sweet spicy scent or the full array of colors borne by this beauty. It's outta this world when it comes to the display of many blue hues–rich magenta spiked with yellow, deep wine sparked with cream, warm lavender spilling to nearly blue. All on just one gorgeous green plant! Free-flowering & super vigorous, she bears big clusters of old-fashioned-formed flowers. Very hardy. Ever-changing colors for all climates.
