A strong bloomer, ‘Caradonna’ features spikes of violet-blue flowers on purple-black stems that rise above the contrasting gray-green leaves. These flowers are on spikes held above fragrant foliage made even more attractive by the purple color of the spikes and stems themselves lending a color intensity that makes this plant even more of an attention getter.  Especially effective in mass plantings, but also good for borders and containers. A great cut flower.
