Hmmm, GRIN recognizes Dracocephalum canescens and Lallemantia canescens as separate species, but it appears they are one and the same. We grew it as Dracocephalum several years ago (it lasted a few years before fading away). I recently obtained seed for Lallemantia, then found out it's the same thing. Which isn't a bad thing, it was a nice enough plant to have around with its blue flowers on short plants. It may have disappeared because it's not supposed to be quite hardy in our zone 6 garden.
|| Flowers first year from seed sown indoors early.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
