Our plant has now started to bloom, and it is pretty, but the picture is blurry again. I need to figure out why, Sorry, but maybe you can tell the color, at least. It is a very intense color, isn't it?

It's awesome color in its flowers.

Do you have ”macro” mode on your camera?

That looks completely different to my S. chamaedryoides Confused I wonder if mine was sold with the correct id? I haven't a photo and it's not flowering right now (just finished after going right through winter!) but it is fairly decumbent, spreading and has small grey-blue foliage and a lighter blue flower than your photo.

I've never grown the 'Marine Blue' variety yet, but when I do, I'm getting it from Flowers By The Sea! Thumbs up
