Positive podster On Dec 10, 2006, podster from Deep East Texas, TX (Zone 8a) wrote:

This is a delightful little plant ~ growth in a pot is 10" height, in soil to 15 inches. It is ever blooming, dead bloom stems easily snap off. Can save seeds although I haven't started these seeds yet. I don't know if it will be a perennial or annual. The blooms on mine are two tone and the color is a difficult one to represent in photos. The top of the bloom (skull cap) is a rich indigo blue the bottom lip is a paler color. Moved to a sheltered porch where temps hover around 50 at night, this basket is still in bloom in the middle of December. Moderate water. Full sun is acceptable.
