Evergreen shrub with 2’ stems that rise from a narrow base. Broad, triangular blue-green leaves clasp together on the narrow stems that seem to grow directly through the leaves. In summer, drooping clusters of lavender-blue flowers bloom at the shoot tips. Shear back old stems for several waves of growth and bloom. Plants in our garden have done well in the understory of mature Eucalyptus globulus. Blue Mountains of Australia.
