In zone 5, this plant blooms later in the season (late summer) and adds a beautiful blue color to the garden. It seems to grow fairly slowly, and does not spread aggressively. Does not seem to be picky about soil conditions or need frequent watering. The shape of the flower really is a unique look among other flowers blooming at the same time.
