Comments Easy to grow in full sun with good drainage. Loved by bees. There is nothing on the market that quite compares to this amazing flower factory. Very large, violet- blue flowers are held on upright stems with deep forest green foliage. Think of this as an endless blooming Penstemon. Spreads. Hardy in Germantown, WI. Compared to other Nepeta yunnanensis, 'Blue Dragon' is more upright and compact (rather than floppy) with larger, showier flowers.
