Description: 'Picos Blue' is a larger and more intensely blue cultivar than is typical of the species. Leaves are grey-green with white veining and flowers an intense blue with a starry, thistle-like form. Usually reaches 60cm in height.

Care: Grow in dry, well-drained soil that is poor to moderately fertile. Full sun is essential as is protection from winter wet. For home use, propagate by root cuttings in late winter. Although you can cut back flower stems after flowering, the seedheads are a very attractive feature so are usually left over winter.
