  • This plant was amazing! I bought it for a container and in year 2 thing exploded! It was absolutely beautiful with all the flowers and the bees seemed to love it! I live in Zone 6, and this thing survived summer temperatures exceeding 110 degrees Fahrenheit and was a champ!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • This flower was in the "personal planting areas" of our condo when we moved in about 7 years ago. I tried to kill it with herbicide, but it just wouldn't die. So I have come to appreciate it's beautiful deep blue flowers and hardy nature. However, I confine it to just one area of my planting section.

    I expect it would do well on a hillside with good sun, and form a beautiful, erosion-resistant section, with color throughout spring, summer and early fall.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
