One could drive a truck over this long-lived awesome perennial without doing more harm than breaking its branches. Tough as nails & long-lived, it’s drought tolerant, deer proof & snail proof. Want more? Okay, lots of bright truest royal blue “Forget-Me-Not” flowers display for months on sturdy multi-branching stems. When it’s finished, cut it back to the foliage for a second performance as good as the first. Not fussy about soil but a yearly addition of compost makes it fantastic. Popular with swallowtails! Drought tolerant! Grows 4' tall & 3' wide.
