This sizeable spreading shrub, with few or no basal leaves, sports strong stems carrying long, upward-facing flowers, which are bright blue to lavender-blue, sometimes with white hairs on the floor of the tubular blossom. In the wild in the USA this plant grows on dry rocky slopes at high elevations. Few scarce seeds collected.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
