This striking plant functions like a semi-vine. Skinny stems with dark grren, palmate leaves grow about 2' tall and then start to look for other plants to weave its way through. It's not smothering at all and adds beautiful texture and color to woodland gardens. The rich blue flowers start blooming in August and casually keep clooming for several weeks. Try planting with Ferns, Goatsbeard, Zigzag Goldenrod, or next to a downed tree so it can sprawl along it. All parts of this plant are extremely poisonous.
