Foliage and flower contrast is beautiful

The dark blue flowers contrast so beautifully with the bronze foliage. It makes a very striking hanging basket.

Easy to germinate, made strong little plants for me. Currently doing well in containers and the landscape with lots of vibrant blue flowers. Would definitely purchase again.

Beautiful. Color

These seeds had great germination rate. The plants took awhile to get big enough to bloom, but now they are loaded with beautiful blue flowers. I have them planted in full sun and part shade. I will definitely plant these again.

Yes love this bold little plant

5 out of 5 stars Jul 3, 2021
Love the punchy cobalt-blue/purple little flowers with the dark metallic brown foliage/stems. It really adds a nice punch of contrast into the garden edges. The plant is very compact only 4-6 inches tall but man does it make a statement.
