Native to Western US. Powder-blue flowers contrast nicely with textured mid-green leaves. Not an in-your-face plant, but good filler. One of our 2004 plants returned in 2005 (not surprisingly, since the intervening winter was mild), but didn't return for a third year. In 2008/2009, another one (new from seed) overwintered, and bloomed by late May.
||blue (late spring-summer)
||6" tall x 3' wide
