I'm very fond of this plant, but I wish it didn't tend to flop so much and I wish it had a longer blooming season. Nonetheless, it is so pretty and so easy that I am considering growing a few more.

Blooms mid to late June in my garden. Very pretty flower, but tends to flop.

Positive lmelling On Nov 12, 2004, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Upright sprays of 1-1/2" asterlike flowers, which are a deep blue-lavendar with a bright yellow center. The foliage forms clumps and the leaves are lance-shaped and mid green. A nice accent flower. I've had them growing outside my back door for about 6 years. Always comes back faithfully with little or no care.
