To the person who posted the picture - that doesn't look like F. bergeriana but rather F. heterophylla. It sounds like the user in Utah is describing the latter plant as well.

I've grown both and they're both lovely. I love felicias.

Utah zone 4/5-Best new plant of the season for me. The blue is beautiful. Started the seed indoors in January for blooms starting May 2. No legginess, frost hardy, However, the center on mine is not yellow or orange like the catalog pic. It's a darker blue-purple ringed with tiny white stamens or pistils.

Electric blue petals surround a gold to orange center on this easily grown tender perennial (commonly grown as an annual.)

Good as an edging plant or in containers and hanging baskets.
