    I love this plant! It spreads about in a carefree manner. This plant is a biennial. They bloom quite profusely mid-late spring and put on a nice show. They never seem to need water or any particular care. I planted a quart sized original plant several years ago and now I have 10 times that many. They are planted where they get morning sun and mostly shade or dappled shade in the afternoon.

    I've had trouble getting this one established in the same area I have the cultivar 'Bluesylva' growing. It still makes an appearance each year, but it's very sparse thus far.
