    Some of my flower garden's best 'blues' come from this one cultivar. Stunning color. Can be a bit floppy after a heavy rain.

    Tolerates a very wide range of soils & temperatures. Doesn't seem to care whether it's treated xerically or not. Loves rain, loves dry, loves sun, loves shade. Seems to be a happy plant that comes back year after year. Very gorgeous blue flowers. Short plant, though. Only gets to be about 8" tall with the blooms. Does not spread.
