Globularia cordifolia

Common name heart-leaf globe daisy
Family plantaginaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers blue
Size 6"
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil

I first saw this plant growing in the Niagara Falls Botanical Garden some eight years ago, and made a mental note that I'd like to try it. Since then, I tried several times to establish it from seed, unsuccessfully - I think the plant sets lots of non-viable seed. I managed to get several other Globularia species going in previous years, and this year it looks like I'll finally succeed with cordifolia - the white form, from this year's NARGS seed exchange. Wish me luck!

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
