    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.

    • This is one of my favorite plants for overall performance in containers. I have a soft spot for blues, and this true blue color stays and plays all season long. It is especially beautiful when paired with a white flower, such as diamond frost euphorbia or a white lantana or verbena. Also pairs well with the soft yellows of calibrachoa, such as yellow chiffon. Reading the other reviews, I am definitely going to try to overwinter it here in zone 8b and add to my collection next year! Thank you, Proven Winners for another outstanding plant for our gardens!

    • Love Blue My Mind! I'm in zone 8 and brought a couple of containers into my garage to winter over. I was so surprised that this came back so strongly. I've been feeding it and it has been blooming constantly. You could say it is blowing my mind with the long lasting true blue blooms!

    • I live in zone 8b and I planted these annuals last year and they have all come back this year. So great. Having a mild winter helped I'm sure. I love those kind of surprises and blessings to my budget.

    • I bought this plant in the fall a 2018 and I overwintered it outside in Savannah Georgia. I thought I might have killed her but it stayed green and I cleaned it up about a month ago added some fertilizer and it has started blooming again and new leaves are popping up on all of it stems. I can't wait to see it come into full bloom.

    • Still looks lovely even though I have not been the best at keeping up with water during several dry spells.

    • 1 of 3 died. The other 2 are alive and green, but not growing and no flowers have bloomed in the 9 weeks since planting. Very disappointing.

      Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
    • Love this plant! I have gardened for many years and did not know about it until I visited my homeland, South Africa, a couple of years ago and just had to have it. I was so excited when I found it at our local nursery last summer. I have it growing on a very difficult to propagate bank and it does so well. It is a fast grower and once established does not need much water (which is great with our water situation in California). We had heavy frost this past winter and I was unable to protect it ahead of time and really thought I had lost it all. I decided to leave what was left of the plants and tend to them last on my rounds of the yard this spring, and amazingly, they have come back beautifully which made me think they are more of a perennial than an annual. They really looked dry and dead, but came back . I am currently pulling other plants in order to plant more of the Evolvulus for an even more showy display. Highly recommended!

    • Have bought this plant for three years. Loved it! Exceptional. This year the nursery , Capognas Greenhouse , Leamington Ontario, didn't grow it! I am SO disappointed. After reading the reviews, I see it could have been brought inside for winter! Darn
