@hkyfvr it’s quite amazing we live so far apart yet our plants are doing exactly the same thing 🤯

Thanks Terri. I think it is the sun shining on them that gives the illusion of two shades of blue. I will have to check and see 👍😊😊 @terrimclaughlin

The flowers are lovely. I've never tried plumago but I've admired it. I don't think it's hardy enough to grow here.

Thanks so much. I think when I got these they said zones 3 to 9. I thought I had lost them but they get a late start. I got impatient I think. 😂💙 @gjones

Just looked up the hardiness of this one but its a zone 5 so won’t survive here. 😟

I am sorry Katy. I was sure my tag said zone 3. I try to get everything zone 3 plus. This year I made an exception when I got my Gaura as it said zone 5 to 9. Now I read on google it is hardy for zone 7 plus. May have to bring it inside. Tags are not reliable at times. Glad you checked that out. ☹️ @gjones

It was worth a try but you’re right -tags aren’t always reliable😊

That sounds awesome. I thought I had lost this. Just planted last fall but took so long to start up. The cold spring did not help. Can’t wait for the blue flowers 💙💙 @niloc

That is amazing Kerry. I thought the Winter had got it. All that was left were dried up twigs. I left them just in case. It took a while but here they are. Hope yours continue to flourish. 💙💙 @kez001uk

I have this plant for several years. It is a very pretty blue in September. Once it gets established it will start sending underground runners which is not a problem if there’s a lot of space and you don’t mind, but in my garden, it’s spreading to the point where I’m pulling it out because it’s invading all the other plants. So I don’t think you have to worry about it coming back. 😊🌞

Thanks for the info. Will keep my eye on this one. 💙 @sunlovin

Another thing about this plant is that because it is a fall flower, it is last to come up in spring. You will find that with a lot of fall flowers. 😉🌞
