Notes:

This bush flowers in the spring, is green all summer and dies out in the winter and I cut it back. It is about 3 to 4 feet wide and high. The flowers are a blue/purple color.

    You’re welcome. Glad to help. Here in Georgia, i don’t bother to cut mine back in winter. It turns golden in the late fall and lasts quite a while that way. I didn’t know it would even survive as far north as New Jersey and I’m quite impressed with that!

    Thank you – that’s it. I have been asking people for quite a while – including some nursery professionals and no one has known. I appreciate your help.
