Great addition to a border!

5 out of 5 stars Jul 20, 2018
Blue Victory is my favorite cluster planting in my borders this year. Gorgeous spires of purple flowers on a plant that adds wonderful height and texture along the borders. I often enjoy my morning coffee near this planting and am mesmerized by the rich diversity of pollinators that show up.

Blue Victory

I planted seeds in eight 4-in pots of this variety in mid-May. 7 pots took off and & I thinned back to recommendations. I transplanted mid-June to early July, as I needed to determine where I wanted the plants. I didn't know how large they would grow, though it says on the package. And boy have they ever grown!! They're still growing strong and it's mid-October. Bright blue beautiful flowers on strong stalks. Bushy and wide, 6 plants have filled a rock garden swath that I had already planted Oopsy Daisey calendula. The orange, yellow and blue are so cheery together and our Italian honey bees (on property) flock to the area. I planted it all around our outdoor gas firepit, so our friends and family enjoy the show and array of color. I'm very impressed with how hardy these plants are, standing up almost straight in the very high winds we can get, especially on hot days (hello Chetco Effect). I do deadhead the spent stalks to keep the plants blooming. Our winters are fairly mild, though they can be soggy, so fingers crossed that these beauties will make it through as they are labeled "tender perennials". I'll be doubling my planting next year and integrating with my zinnias.

These were very easy to grow from seed, starting in a greenhouse in late March and started blooming in June. They are gorgeous but mine have grown to about 3 feet in zone 7a. Didn't expect that height! Great addition to the garden and flowers last a long time.

Big and Beautiful

5 out of 5 stars Oct 28, 2021
These have always been some of my favorite flowers to grow. So easy to germinate and grow under lights indoors and transplant easily with no sign of stress. I will mirror prior reviews in saying that these were huge! They surpassed the 20" packet height probably a month after transplanting and grew to over 3 feet tall. Nonstop blooms through summer and still have blooms on them now at nearly Halloween. Even the spent blooms are beautiful as the bracts are a deep purple/blue. I hope they overwinter, but they're so easy to grow from seed that I wouldn't be heartbroken if they didn't make it.

Beautiful blues

I got these seeds and planted them in milk jugs, using the winter sowing method, and they performed very well. I transplanted them to planter boxes next to roses and they were...still are...absolutely beautiful. I've bought plants before but will continue growing seeds. I'm planning a pollinator garden between two peach trees and these will definitely be part of the mix.

Evergreen Surprise!

5 out of 5 stars May 3, 2022
I bought these seeds a year or two ago and at the end of last season, I threw some in little 4-packs that I had laying around, wanting some blooms for the fall. I left them in those containers for MONTHS atop my garden bed (they rooted through the bottom into the soil, so that's probably how they survived despite my neglect) and forgot about them. They never bloomed, but to my surprise, the foliage stayed green all winter! Again, I cannot stress how little I cared for them and how they weren't even properly planted! In February or March I decided to actually plant them, and now they're 1.5 feet tall and buds are forming and quickly developing. Long story short, these are amazingly hardy plants (in zone 7b-8a) and I 100% recommend them for lazy gardeners like myself :)

Last year was my first year growing flowers from seed. These were very easy and bloomed for so long. My best flower of the year that I grew.
