    Lavender Blue Baby was purchased mid year, and it has a scape full of buds. I'm eager to see this bloom, but we are so late in the year here in Texas, I fear it may freeze. I have covered it in the light freezes we've had, and the scape continues to survive and look healthy. Keeping fingers crossed!

    This was Lavender Blue Baby's first year in my zone 3a garden. I was a little disappointed with the first few blooms finding that they were on the small side and the color wasn't too pretty, it did improve in form and color once we had warmer temperatures, it had been a cold spring and summer, hopefully next year with better weather it will live up to my expectations.
