This is one of my favorite plants in the garden. We’re in its second year, and I wasn’t sure how well it would come back. It probably gets just a bit too much hot sun in the afternoon during summer. I need to find places for more and will be looking at Queen of Hearts for some height!

I love this plant. I live in Canada and it tolerates morning sun. Everyone loves the pretty blue flowers it throws up in late-spring.Farah Yacoob, Ontario, Canada, 2 years ago
