An evergreen shrub with dramatic grey green to silvery grey foliage. Mature specimens can get to 6-8’ tall, 8-10’ wide. Mature specimens become flat-topped and tree-like, and a little bizarre; you may find them a little woody and somewhat unattractive, I find them beautiful and intriguing. Tall, upright spikes of densely packed flowers appear in early to mid spring. Color ranges from light rose pink through dark purple blue, with most plants falling somewhere in the medium blue range. This is a plant Californians pretty much take for granted but out of state visitors are often struck by their beauty and comment on them. It really deserves to be featured for its spiky grey foliage and texture alone, especially against dark backgrounds, and would be quite valuable whether it ever bloomed or not.
