Are these annuals or biennials?
There seem to be several varieties?
I think they are wildflowers in some areas?
I get a patch going for a year or two and then they just quit?

Hi Caroline --
I am not too familiar with these. From what I'm reading, J. laevis acts like a biennial and J. crispa is a perennial but sometimes doesn't return the third year (when cultivated). They are native to rocky mountainous areas and definitely a wildflower in some places. I hope someone who has grown these will come along with more info on how they act in cultivation. They are a lovely blue color.

So different varieties may act different.
I'll try to get seeds for several and compare them.

Great! Ditches and woods ... that's right where a lot of wildflowers are found. Take photos and post them when you can, please. Lovey dubby

I'm going to try to post some of the Tennessee wildflowers I have around here. I'm still recuperating ... but I'll get it done one of these days. Glare nodding
