Such drama this plant displays... the blue deep and dark, but not as dark as the base of the black on the stem... very nice indeed!
To BROOTS: can you provide me with additional information concerning the culture of this plant --- soil pH; sun/shade; hardiness, etc., etc. ? Thanks. docturf
pssst, docturf - click on the hyperlink above - most of the information you mentioned is found in the plant's entry :o)
Starshine, I'm glad you enjoyed the photo. I just love this plant. This is my first year growing it.
Docturf, for all your info do as Terry's stated, click the link. The photo above was taken in a part shade location. I have some at the side of the house & they get full hot sun & are much taller & fuller. I also have to grow this as an annual. This is my first year. I'm going to try taking cuttings. Don't know if you are into birds or not, but the hummingbirds go nuts for this in my yard.
