Gardeners' Notes:

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.
