Blue Woodruff 'Cloud Nine'

Asperula orientalis
'Cloud Nine' blue woodruff is pure bliss, with clusters of sublime white tubular flowers floating above the strong, fine stems and foliage. The first white flowered form available—note its common name, blue woodruff—it is another feather in the cap of Dutch breeder Rob van der Vort. Moon gardens now have a carefree new flower, lovely intermingled with white verbena.
