I’m not quite sure why anyone grows G.officinalis when they could have this a lovely fresh green plant making upright stems to about 3ft with spikes of really deep rich violet pea flowers at the tips. Easy and accommodating in a wide variety of conditions.
It runs about a bit underground but not to the extent that it takes over. I grow it among other largeish perennials and shrubs and it pops up here and there making a lovely contrast. Well worth having, not like those weedy wishy-washy officinalis types. Ugh!
