Description

Dusty buds swell into a "balloon" and then burst open into deep blue, bell shaped blossoms above compact, deep green foliage. 'Mariesii' is a very reliable bloomer that is pest and disease free, slow to emerge in spring but worth the wait. If your plants get too tall, try pinching the stems once in mid-spring for more compact branching growth.

Sowing Advice

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.
