Steroidal Heliotrope

Here’s a trial plant growing in the garden that exceeded our expectations by miles. Heliotropium ‘Augusta Lavender’ is a Brent Barnes hybrid that has to be seen to be believed. Promoted as an annual, this 1 year old clump sailed through our 11F winter with no issues. A little bird tells me that this will be included in the upcoming Plant Delights catalog.

  1. I saw that one on Sunday morning after the SE Plant Symposium, photographed it, and looked to see if you had it in the greenhouses for sale. Love it! You have it growing in one of your well-draining half Perma-Till raised beds. Do you think it needs that exceptional drainage, or would it do in more average soil?
