detailed seed-starting info below

Chinese species, lower-growing with fine-frilly leaves. I planted the two seedlings that survived their first winter on the slightly more protected north side of our rock garden, where the sun doesn't beat down all day. They bloomed in their shocking blue color, yet in a charming way, from late June into July.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
