Can't wait for mine to hopefully flower next year, after 3 years of having to endure being with me! 🙈 Stunning!

They're such a gorgeous shade of blue. Bear with it Beckers, it'll be worth it in the end!

I can't get this to over winter! Tried one in the ground then one in a pot. Both died.

That's a shame Joan. I've found they like drier soils but they can be a bit temperamental until they're established. I've lost a couple in my garden too.

The key is to make sure the roots have plenty of drainage. Try digging in some horticultural grit in the planting hole to encourage free draining. A mulch over the winter can also help
