Vigorously growing plant for consistently moist environments. Small but charming powder-blue flowers over a large period of bloom. Our current patch started out in a pot that was set in our swimming pond's bog filter area. It died out in its original location, but made an escape into the bog area itself, where it continues to inhabit the shallow water and soggy side.

|This may not look like much in the photo - but on this late-December day, it was the only significantly green plant remaining in our filtration bog. That's a good thing! |
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

Thanks for the pointer, Stephanie. Worth knowing indeed.
