Bought at the markets. Seller said it is not a shrub - ' Just a plant. Doesn't lose its leaves.'

Otacanthus caeruleus
Peek-A-Blue.
After they have flowered cut them to around 10cm.
They are a very brittle plant so grow them in an out of the way spot. Very easy to propagate.

This was my Peek-a- boo before I pulled it out. I had already pulled a few branches off.
It just grew too big for that space and I am doing a garden makeover.
