This lovely small, frost-hardy shrub grows 2-4' high and has thick glossy obovate leaves and reddish bronze stems. The flowers, which are presented on short, dense, axillary racemes, are a very pretty shade of violet blue and appear in late summer and fall.
'Autumn Beauty' has longer spikes of paler blue blooms and more elongated leaves.
Zones 9-10.
