    Maintenance Notes: 

    Blue My Mind loves hot weather, in fact, the hotter the better! It will perform best in full sun and needs to be protected from even light frost. It is drought tolerant, once it is established. Plants do need to be watered well for several weeks during root establishment. While the plants can withstand drought conditions, growth and flowering are better with consistent moisture. Deadheading is unnecessary. A good dose of compost or slow release fertilizer will improve performance.

    • I planted two of the Blue My Mind in a mixed planter in a sunny location. They are an interesting small spreading plant, more of a filler than a spiller. The flowers are a mesmerizing shade of blue and are produced all season. The bad part is, during the summer the blooms all close up by mid-afternoon. They are pretty, but the early closing diminishes their usefulness. During the cooler fall weather they stay open longer.

    • We live in South Carolina and our Blue my minds grow as perennials .. They also bloom way into the late fall here in SC. They give us a larger spread than what's listed. Ours grow about 2 feet wide. We love them

    • Love, love, love "Blue My Mind"! Hardy grower and bounces back very well, if you forget to water them. True blue that looks stunning in my Copenhagen blue and white planters.

    • These were not winners for me. I tried them in a zone 7 and they never did much. I planted them in late May but the plants didn't start putting on any growth until August, so we were only able to really enjoy them for a month. They didn't fill in and looked pretty sad for most of the season.

    • This was a difficult transplant on beginning I planted in soil that was poor with cactus since drought tolerant. Did better with more fertilizer and water. May have lost due to recent Texas freeze even covered and protected. Cut it back fertilized and we will see. Will do weekly for a while.

    • I ordered this plant direct from PW online because I have never seen it In my local greenhouses. This is an exceptional plant. I used it in containers in full sun zone 6b. I moved some of them into the house to see if I could overwinter them, and they have also done very well as a house plant. Occasionally I trim them back, but they have continued to flower since I got them in spring 2020.

    • Mom wanted a red white and blue garden in front of the house for 4th of July. We spotted Blue My Mind in Lowe’s while picking up some red and white vinca. We had just removed overgrown shrubs from this spot, so with some new soil, manure, peat moss and turning of the bed we set out the plants according to Mom’s plot plan. This was about the 20th of June. By the fourth we had a magnificent display that was the envy of the neighborhood and the joy of Mom’s heart. It is now Oct 17 and the bed is still going strong although I’ve removed some of the vinca as they started to get to thick and crowd the lower blue my mind. They are backed up by yellow and red hibiscus plants. What joy this garden has brought my Mom who is no longer able to get out to the yard. This is a joy from the front porch where she now spends her time. Thanks for a great plant.

    • Outstanding plant. Beautiful blue flowers dotted with white centers and blue green foliage. They flower non-stop and stay tidy. They're growing gloriously in a planter on my sunny southward facing front porch, sharing planter space with purple and yellow wishbone flowers and their lighter green foliage. What a contrast. So eye catching. Blue my mind has proven to be easy to grow and maintain, It behaves itself well and doesn't hang too far from the planter top, it branches out over the planter side a few inches on sturdy stems, but not downward. I wish this were a perennial in my zone (7b) 'cause I would have an entire bed devoted to this stunner as well as it's cousin, the blue daze. I found these at my local Lowes. What a beautiful surprise they turned out to be. i will be looking for them again next season.

    • This is one of the most beautiful plants I have ever grown. The flower are small, delicate, and impossibly pretty. We have shallow, long planters sitting on the rails of our patio. After trying many flowers and various combinations, this plant is the only one we now grow in them. The plants get beat on by the sun for most of the day and are constantly full of the small, rich blue flowers. There is no need for any dead heading. The low maintenance is fantastic. Having some trial and error with the plants, I have some observations. They do creep a good bit and fill in thick, so do not be tempted to overcrowd. They do better with some space to grow into. Maybe related to this, I've never had any reach the height in the product description. It is a leggy plant and it flops over more than grows up. It does not hang down over the sides of our planters, but prefers to kind of stick out and swoop back up, so do not expect dramatic draping. Some hang lower, but it is not a plant that is going to cascade down out of a pot or planter, if that is what you are after. It also says the plants are drought resistant. In my experience, if they get stressed to the point of a good wilting, they will survive. However, all the flowers will pop off, and it will be a couple weeks until new ones grow back. For this reason, we are very careful to keep them well watered. It is worth the attention and toting the watering can, though. We get these every year and will continue to do so. I wish I could post a pic to share!
