Clusters of deep blue flowers over elongated leaves. At least, that's what my research told me. In fact, I got spotted creamy-white flowers. So it may be something different. Any thoughts?
||dark blue-purple (summer)
||well-drained soil, not too dry
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Lori Skulski||May 16, 2015||eFlora of China says the flowers on G. siphonantha are dark blue-purple (as on the plants I grew from wild-collected seed). http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200018083
Perhaps G. tibetica? How broad are the basal leaves? |
I've grown G. tibetica, and there are certainly similarities. So far, these "siphonantha" are considerably smaller plants than the G. tibetica were; I'll continue to observe and document with photos.
