If you want some "blue" in your landscape, this the plant to have as far as I'm concerned. I know that lower zones would have a hard time wintering it over, but I think it's hardier than posted. It's very nice if you can grow several plants together. I always get a lot of comments asking what it is.

I've grown Blue Angel for a few years and love it in the garden each time. Love the large blue flowers.

One can grow these in cold Zones by treating them just like Dahlias- lifting, storing and replanting the tubers. For what you get they are well worth growing as annuals too.
