The blossom color is a very intense violet blue. I do not appreciate the smell when the leaves are brushed against. The first surprise was that the plant produced a seedling from last year's seeds, even after growing in dry conditions, and after a winter that killed my crocosmia and oregano. The offspring is now blooming, too. The second surprise is that it grew a healthy amount of blooms this spring, only its second year.
For The Record:
Medium soil, somewhat dry conditions
Blooming: Mountain laurel, salvia, geranium, coreopsis, astilbe
Cleome, snapdragon, castor seedlings planted
