Honey Bush Giant 'Purple Haze'

Available in Store Only
An exceptional compact form of the Honey Bush from South Africa, with sensational steely blue foliage with purple highlights, held along tidy stems to two and two and one-half feet tall. Erect burgundy red, nectar-rich bird- attracting flowers appear in late winter to early spring in mild regions. A wonderful container plant in colder regions. Prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established. Photo credit: Dan Hinkley
