Description Briscoe's Tips
 

Heliotropium arborescens


No Victorian home or garden was complete without a few heliotrope plants. They have a habit of turning to face the sun; east to west during the day, and back to the east during the night so that it can meet the dawn when it comes. Both the Greek name heliotrope (helios for sun, and tropein, to turn) and the old English name turnsole refer to this tendency.

This lovely plant has dark green leaves and dark blue broccoli-like 4-6 inch flower clusters above branching stems. It has a light, unforgettable vanilla fragrance and its flower clusters really attracts bees to the garden. It makes an excellent container or garden plant.

Beautiful Blue June 8, 2014
Reviewer: Lara W from Belmont, NC United States  
Reliable, beautiful blue blooms for a sunny garden. I have these in our south facing garden that gets lots of afternoon sun. Even when one plant arrive slightly disheveled with wilted leaves, it bounced right back with fresh soil and a healthy drink of water. I will definitely order again!
