Trichostema Midnight Magic - Hybrid Blue Curls

Trichostema Midnight Magic is a hybrid of T. lanatum, a california species and T. purpusii from Mexico that was developed by Suncrest. The result is a shrub that is more compact, long lived, and less finicky about garden conditions.Trichostema Midnight Magic grows to 4 feet tall and wide. The Hybrid Blue Curls plants are drought tolerant once established. Soil should be well drained and kept on the dry side, especially in Summer. Trichostema Midnight Magic produces purple blue flowers Spring through Fall that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Trichostema Midnight Magic attracts the California Dogface Butterfly, Variable Checkerspot, Sara Orangetip, Umber Skipper, and the Monarch Butterfly to its blooms and is a great addition to the butterfly garden
