Dwarf Plumbago is a beautiful groundcover that often blooms until frost. It is considered one of the bluest flowering perennials. The foliage looks fresh all summer long, regardless of the heat and humidity. Then, as temperatures begin to cool with the approach of autumn, the leaves turn a deep burnished shade of red . Very versatile, Dwarf Plumbago is tolerant of shade, drought and most soil types. It is also attractive to butterflies. Missouri Botanical Garden, Plant of Merit, 2007.
