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.

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.
