I've been pondering blue and orange together in my mind while it is white outside...and there it is --a stunning example!
Sue, do you still have this plant? Can you please tell me more about it? how big does it get? how does it spread? runners? seed? is it fairly well behaved or does it take over? how long does it bloom? how does it handle heat and drought? Etc.

Thanks,

I don't have the original, it got too huge for it's location so I pulled it but not before I made sure I had several self seeded ones. It is a tough plant, drought and heat tolerant. Can't remember how long it bloomed but it seemed like a few months after the initial big spring bloom. I got the original one at Annie's Annuals, here is her description:
