I LOVE this plant!! I'll be sure and have it EVERY year in my garden! Can anyone tell me how to collect seeds though?
I love the blooms on this variety too.
Nice deep blue flowers provide forage for bumble bees.
4 day old seedling of 'Blue Bedder'
About two months of growth, early July.
Mid July, first year.
Open seed pods, late August. These seem to ripen and release willy nilly as the flower grows.
Grown from seed. It's August and they're blooming like crazy.
The bees and butterflies love my Salvia plants.

Excellent plant. Bees visit every single flower. Indian Spring hollyhock in back.
