The astonishingly intense blue of these remarkable bell-shaped flowers would give any member of the Gentian family a run for their money. A very long-flowering annual thriving on poor sandy soil, it will make an eye-catching addition for your rockery, or a conversation piece in an ornamental pot on your patio.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
