Wonderful flower!Review by Linda - Montpelier, OH Posted on 2013-04-10 13:05:05
The first year I planted this, it bloomed in spring and was still blooming in the snow. It has become my favorite plant. Put garden pinks beside it and WOW!
Blue ScabiosaReview by Margaret Rexroad - Gassaway, WV Posted on 2013-02-14 02:27:04
Though not the color as described, this plant has bloomed well past the 2nd snow. I haven't been able to get the height much above 12 inches but it is a beautiful addition to my mother's garden as it slides into winter weather like a champion. This plant may very well get rid of those early winter blues!
Cool Dr. Seuss-like plant!Review by Chicksy - Rockville, MD Posted on 2013-01-05 09:13:01
I planted this in full blistering sun that crippled/killed many other supposedly "full sun" plants. It thrived! The flowers are more of a light purple-blue than the blue in the picture - but it looks great and flowers prolifically.
