Clear blue flowers in early summer; the grassy foliage goes dormant in summer, so the plant is well suited to locations that go dry after the spring rains subside. According to most reports, it needs a protective mulch to survive in zone 6 – but so far, it has survived several winters in our garden without any protection.
