growing these for the first time from seeds my sister (in IL) sent (must come true from seeds at least sometimes). I love the little flowers and they last very well cut, with the buds continuing to mature and bloom for many days. took about 3 mo. from seeds to blooms.

This is a very attractive little plant, the flowers resemble orchids, and they do well as a potted plant. I have no experience in growth habits from when planted in the ground.

I overwintered mine and I don't recommend it. The plant becomes floppy- even after cutting it back in the spring and it doesn't flower as well as it did the first year.

The AngelMist series is covered by Plant Breeders Rights/Plant Patents in a number of countries including USA, Canada and the UK.

Bears lavender-blue flowers with a whiteish throat.

Loves a well-drained soil in full sun. While it should be well watered it is best to allow them to dry out between each watering (just not for too long!). You may get a second flowering flush if you cut them back after an early flush and there is enough time left in the season.

They make good container plants as well as bedding and are often grown as annuals, unless you have space to bring them indoors when frost arrives.
