It looks just like the Trachelium caeruleum 'Hamar Pandora' I got from Annie's Annuals (in California) a few years ago. It is from the Mediterranean, and is likely perennial in Berkeley, did not survive a cold wet winter here in zone 8 in Seattle. It can be grown as an annual as it flowers the first year. I loved it. So did the bees. I just bought some seeds from Plant World Seeds for a variety called 'Black Knight' that looks quite similar. I can't wait.
