Startlingly gentian-blue flower open on this bright, drought-tolerant gem that comes not just from the Havana area of Cuba but also the rocky pinelands of the Caribbean area, including South Florida. This dazzling blue "Skullcap" is a dependable choice for well-drained locations in full to part sun. Once you have planted it, it will cheerfully spread around and reseed itself in a localized area, and should never be invasive, so some will always return, even after you think it's gone.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
