Honeywort, Kiwi Blue

85% of 100

Annual. A recently ‘rediscovered’ ancient flower, grown in European gardens since the middle ages. This subtle stunner has cool silvery blue foliage and nodding indigo blooms. A relative of borage, each flower has a drop of ‘honey’ that is irresistible to pollinators. This lesser known foliage plant has recently been embraced by floral designers as a versatile foliage filler. It becomes an even deeper blue as cool weather sets in.
