I have had Dream Blue for several years. It has been a vigorous grower and I have divided it several times. It comes up early and well after a long winter and has always bloomed heavily. The blooms are a lovely purple colour. It is an older cultivar, so it doesn't have the heavy substance of some of the newer cultivars. The blooms hold up well to the weather, though. It always puts on a good display in the garden, and it looks beautiful with yellow perennials.

Dream Blue is a fighter. In an area where dormants seem to struggle, not bloom and fizzle out, I can say that Dream Blue is trying. It blooms shorter and smaller but holds its color here.

When other dormants want to run away, Dream Blue does try to put on a show.

Look at those eyes and color!

I may try Dream Blue on the east side of the garden.

May you find beauty and joy in your garden!
