I hope to someday grow this plant in my yard, so far no luck!

What a stunning blue. I've tried to grow this plant with not very good success. Might have to give it another whirl.

While I'm not really enamoured of that shade of blue, I decided to try to grow it from seed after spotting the seed package while visiting Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island during a recent visit. The seeds have germinated so the adventure begins. I have a lot of rhododendrons (near the woods) in my garden so I should manage a spot where they can grow. How to keep the slugs/snails at bay is the real problem.

I think your photograph is great!!!
