Hoping this thrives in my piedmont NC location.

Visibly wilts in early April noonday sun, for those considering adding it to their yards.

Seems to be doing OK in it's new, shadier spot, however.

I just love this plant - it's early to bloom in the spring, it wintered over extremely well in zone 7, and the flowers are just blue as blue. Every time I walk past it I have to go over and admire it! Definitely a keeper and one I will look to get more of!

I love this plant! The brilliant cobalt-blue flowers are phenomenal and the leaves are equally show-stopping.
I planted it in a low lying area with ferns, hostas, goatsbeard and other shade lovers. A chartreuse-leafed spirea is also in the circular planting and provides a great accent.

Trevi Fountain needs an occasional watering in hot, dry weather, but otherwise is care-free.
