    • I discovered this plant in early Spring and was immediately attracted to the brilliant true blue flowers. It’s planted in 2 large clay pots, and it bloomed profusely for several weeks, then stopped. The plant is healthy and has continued to grow, but it hasn’t re-bloomed. I removed the spent flowers, but that didn’t help. I’m going to try transplanting it in a flower bed. Maybe it needs more space. I fed it with Osmocote. I’ll give it the rest of this growing season to see how it does as an in-ground plant, but if it doesn’t bloom again I will not be replacing them next Spring. We live in central Texas.

    • I discovered this glorious plant quite a few years ago and now look for it every spring. It usually begins making its appearance here in Michigan around the same time as pansies and are quite the sight for sore eyes after a long winter. The first time I bought one, it was in the houseplant area of a large grocery/homegoods store so I thought it was strictly an indoor plant. But I decided to repot it and put it outdoors in a somewhat sheltered area on my deck. It stayed beautiful for weeks and seemed not to mind the cool spring weather at all. It does look like such a delicate plant but don't let that fool you! The second time I bought a larger potted Percallis (the blue and white variety) very early in the spring and put it directly outdoors in a sunny location. Again it stayed in full bloom for weeks and stayed healthy and vibrant. Once the blooms faded, I totally deadheaded the plant and planted it directly into a large wine barrel planter out in my garden. I gave it some Miracle Grow and it just took off, growing, getting a lot of new buds and blooming nearly all summer long! In the heat of summer, I just made sure to keep it watered. Love this plant and am so glad I discovered it!!

    • Brilliant color attracts your attention. Vivid and upright blooms are constant. A real shower.

    • Incredibly beautiful. Flowers over a long period starting in Jan. I have them outside but near the house so they are somewhat protected. I live in hills in southern California. Several microclimates in my yard. My 3rd year for these beauties.

    • I planted this is filtered sun, in my shade garden and it has bloomed for a long time. I hope it reblooms now that I deadheaded the spent blooms.

    • Acceptable looking plant for first 2 weeks, but soon is attacked by leaf miners and fungus, even during our cool and very dry winter.

    • We discovered this plant early last spring. It was the first beautiful color of the year and lasted through late fall. Never lost its brilliance. This year, we bought 4 of them, one of each color and believe we'll have 4 times the pleasure this year!
