A wonderful, exotic looking marginal pond plant. A very tall plant growing to 270 cm in height, with striking red stems. Striking lush waxy leaves complement the exotic flower spikes of Thalias. The unusual flower heads cluster in blue buds bursting into silvery blue blossoms, which are followed by decorative seed heads. Remove decaying foliage regularly for best effect. Plant in zone 2, in full or part sun. This Thalia is less hardy and should be protected from freezing in winter.
