Fantastic blooms. I'm a blue-lover. I could not just look and go away! I had to come in and appreciate it! I grew this from seed from a trade from the US. But now I have lost its seeds. It did reasonably well here for 3-4 years but did not flower profusely. "upallnightfrequently" is not good for health! LOL. :) :)
