  1. Wonderful deep blue, and a magnet for bumble bees!

    By Heather Buckley 23-02-2014

    I grew this for the first time last year but it will be a regular in my garden from now on. The flowers are a wonderful intense blue, and it flowers throughout the summer - and we loved the fact that it was so popular with the bees, and we saw many different species of bumble bees on it. It also provided a lovely planting partner for my calendulas. Thank you for your review. I hope we can continue to be of service.
