My Globularia meridionalis is just budding...I grew it last year from seed. The 'Blue Bonnets' is very nice. I must admit that I've never grown them before so I'm looking forward to seeing how they perform.

I really like the dark blue of G. velutina and 'Blue Bonnets' is a cutie. I just bought some G. stygia and started seed for G. cordifolia this year. So this is my first year with Globularia as well. I doubt I'll have any blooms until next year.

Todd, did you get good germination results from your seed?

Hi Corinne; I did get reasonably good germination. I did stratify the seeds first (I do with most alpines). I had about 12 G. meridionalis seedlings. Only the one I planted in the alpine house at the Bot garden is flowering. Mine at home will be waiting until next year. A friend has G. bellidifolia which is also wonderful.

Ally, I tried G. cordifolia but it only survived 3 years...it did flower before it expired. The flowers are quite small on that species. You might have better luck since I think that one prefers a more continental climate.

Here is the first bloom on the G. meridionalis from our BG. I grew them last year from seed but this is the only one to bloom.
