Plant details

Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), 'Lasurstern' was first introduced in 1905, yet still holds its own among modern varieties. Its beautiful lavender-blue flowers have cream anthers and wavy edges. It has two flushes of flowers from late spring to early summer and from late summer to early autumn. These are followed by attractive whiskery seedheads. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
