I planted several Blue Skies in a large patio pot, hoping that they would fill in around the other plants and drape over the sides. They became very full and lush and spilled over the sides almost to the ground. They are a deep, rich purple and, believe it or not, are still beautiful and blooming after several frosts and some 40*daytime temperatures. I've never seen a plant look so hardy and beautiful on November 1st! I will definitely be buying this plant again next spring provided that I can find it. I've really gotten my money's worth!
