Sinyukha delights and touches me endlessly. Usually her blue and white panicles for a month and a half attract the eye. And I always catch her amazing smell in the garden - subtle, delicate, refined, somewhat reminiscent of jasmine.
My favorite blue cyanosis (Роlemonium caeruleum) is from the same family (cyanosis) with phlox, although the plants are not alike. During flowering, its bushes are up to a meter high. Delicate green openwork leaves are in perfect harmony with airy flowers. These miniature "bells" with a diameter of 1-1.5 cm do not hang in the inflorescence, but rush up to the same blue sky.

The white-flowered form of cyanosis is also very elegant. Composition with silvery wormwood, velvet stachis and variegated cereals, she looks like a bride at a wedding. And the environment only emphasizes the tenderness of her appearance.
The variegated form is especially dear to me, however, it is more demanding on conditions and even grows more slowly. But such cyanosis may not even bloom, it is still in the spotlight all season.
Sinyukhas feel well in the semi-shady corners of the garden next to hosts, badans, primroses, daylilies, Siberian irises and buzulniks. I planted them in the middle of the flower garden, since in the second half of summer the decorativeness of the bushes decreases slightly. To cause the second wave of flowering, I immediately cut off the faded stems and apply potassium-phosphorus fertilizer.

By the way, the foliage of this perennial is not afraid of September frosts, just the bushes change their usual outfit to a bright lemon one.
In general, cyanosis is rather indifferent to soil and light, but they love water very much. For me they grow well on the poor soil of a rocky flower garden among dwarf coniferous and deciduous shrubs next to unpretentious geraniums, cuffs and loosestrife.
The perennial is propagated by seeds, dividing the bush and cuttings. In the spring, ask your neighbors to cut off the shoot with a heel that has grown from an underground bud (10-15 cm long), put it under a plastic bottle, and in a month you will have cyanosis. Grown from seeds, it will bloom only in the second year.
And also cyanosis is a famous healer. It has been proven that the infusion from its roots soothes more effectively than valerian, helps with debilitating coughs and insomnia, together with dried cress heals stomach ulcers. In short, cyanosis is a jack of all trades.
