I just love this plant! I planted 6 more near my hostas las year! Compact, flowers abudantly in spring with true blue tiny flowers. Must keep moist for best performance. Some of the plants seem to "brown out" if given either too much sun or if kept too wet though. Spreads quickly, so shear them off by 1/3 to 1/2 right after blooming to keep it in bounds. Very pretty in a shade garden!
