From the locations of the websites that show photos of this species, I guess it is native to mountain ranges in western and central Europe. The leaves are spoon-shaped; the flowers look fluffier than other globularias I've grown, but in the same shade of lavender to powder-blue. Young plants aren't much to look at, going through a bit of an ugly duckling stage, but by year three they come into their own.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list

Definitely loses viability over the course of the first two years. Seedlings are often weak and stay small for a long time.
