Nice little plant. The colour tends to be more of a fleshy peach shade here rather than lavender, which isn't my favourite colour, but it is vigorous and produces lots of blooms once it is established.

Has produced pods and has fertile pollen too. In my garden it is one that sticks out the pistil before the flower opens so I have most success by pollinating it the night before the flower is going to open.

Has a very definite blue colour to the eye in colder weather, and the flower colour tends to be more of a lavender tone then. Stands up to rain and winds with no problems.
