Planted August 2020, I got some nice blooms out of it this year.

Considering that this were two tiny shriveled fans from G Wild, they have settled in very nicely. I got 23 blooms beginning July 3rd and ending August 17. It's a short plant but perfect for the front of the border

I've had Huckleberry Candy a LONG time ago. It is a very reliable grower/bloomer here in USDA Zone 7a/b. It has a lot of "blue" in the flower, and is pretty consistent in it's color and size. It has a nice long scape that carries the flowers well above the foliage. 3 to 5 branching and lots of buds makes this one a great display plant, which is typical of the Candy series. It readily produces seed and can go either to full form, or UF, depending on the other parent in the cross. Though it is up there in age, I will still keep it---cause I like it---and I'm up there in age, too. lol
