For the ideal home landscape Dragonhead will add a burst of color when other perennials are fading, early summer to early fall of violet-blue flowers, and will spread rapidly in full sun or partial shade. The best time to propagate is in the spring by dividing the root ball and plant in a moist well drained soil mixture. Dragonhead is native to Russia so it can take the cold possibly down to zone 5 with protection. It will reach a height of 8"-12" and it’s sometimes used as a cut flower.
Moved to Charlotte in 1994 after relocating from Denver, CO, after starting a legal publishing company.I did landscape design/build in Denver but with my health and age I felt it best to do a desk job.
