Slow to establish for me here in southern Missouri. Planted 3, 2 survived. It was not until the 4th year that I was able to truly enjoy the beautiful blooms. But worth the wait for my blue/white garden! Nice vertical shape. Survived a brutal winter here with no problems.

I have had this plant in my garden for over ten years. It has been neglected but happily returns every year in a dry, sunny spot!!

I just joined this site to do some research on some plants I'd like to order. I'm finding it frustrating that some people are quoting word for word the descriptions from Bluestone Perennials website! I want to know what real people think, but read the same thing as a site that's selling the plant.

This plant is evergreen for us. It has a short clumpy growth with long lanceated leaves (think that is the term). It perks up just as soon as the snow is gone. It sends up tall stems with buds all up the stem. If you deadhead them, they will bloom all summer. The 'bell' flower is a delicate pale bluish white, with pale blue trim. It really doesn't like being moved which sets it back in vigor. But if left alone, spreads nicely
