This is a great plant for dry areas and poor soils. It flowers in a bed that receives no water other than rain and because it flowers in May/June it has already flowered before any burning summer heat can get to it. It will even flower in a gravel bed! Prolific self seeder ... I just rip off the seed heads and chuck them wherever I want it to flower the following year.

Excellent plant - long bloom time, beautiful blue color to the blooms followed by attractive seed heads, fine ferny foliage. Looks great as a companion to other plants. Loved it.

This easy to grow annual blooms in a nice, true blue color. It self-sows prolifically and needs some thinning to look its best. Pull up the plants before the pods split open if you don't want lots of seedlings. The decorative pods can be used in dried flower arrangements.
