This is my first year growing C. cashmeriana. I started it from seed indoors early this spring, and it is blooming in the first season. The flowers are a lilac-blue, bell-shaped, and quite small. They flower over a long period of time. The gray-green foliage has a soft look, and it's semi-trailing habit makes it an attractive plant, even when it is not in bloom. This plant is found in Kashmir and Afghanistan.

Germination takes 14-28 days. Surface sow, do not exclude light during germination. Keep surface moist. Keep seedlings cool.
