Low growing leadwort or Ceratostigma plumbaginoides produces interesting foliage that makes a nice groundcover especially over bulbs as it awakens very late in spring. Deep green foliage turns to red hues in fall. Electric blue, starry flowers in the late summer are captivating.

Spreads slowly, providing wonderful drifts of color. As the flowers fade, the autumn foliage turns on, developing brilliant shades of red.

Ceratostigma produces brilliant blue flowers with striking red calyxes that cover bright green foliage from mid-summer to fall when the leaves turn deep red. A wonderful groundcover, it is a great choice for beds of spring bulbs because it emerges late, as the bulb foliage declines.
