Melianthus major 'Antonow's Blue'

Honey Bush

A fabulously textural plant that some call 'Peanut butter plant' for the yummy scent of the crushed leaves. This variety has a rich, nearly iridescent blue hue and strongly serrated edges to the dramatic, arching foliage. Plant this statuesque beauty 4-6'' deeper than normal to increase chances of survival for those in zonal denial or containerize and bring in for the winter. Cut back hard in late winter to keep in vegetative mode. The foliage is long-lasting in cut arrangements too. An architectural stunner! A reasonably hardy plant that grows 4 to 6 feet tall and about as wide.

Melianthus major 'Purple Haze'

Honey Bush

New ! Absolute foliage magnificence with serrated-edged powdery blue and a lavender rinse. Purple stems rise to 2-3 ft. If you allow the stems to survive the winter intact, cones of red purple flowers rise on long red-purple necks. Long lived in containers. A wonder, dramatic, textural plant that some call 'Peanut butter plant' for the yummy scent of the crushed leaves. Plant this 4-6'' deeper than normal to increase chances of survival for those in zonal denial or containerize and bring in for the winter. Most cut back hard in late winter to keep in vegetative mode to focus plant energy on the foliage. The foliage is long-lasting in cut arrangements too.
