Other info: Nice cut flower. I fell in love with these little flowers this past year, 2008. I direct sowed the seeds and the plants came up and grew quickly with a mass of blue blooms. Most impressive was that either some seeds were *very* late germinating, or otherwise they self-sowed and I had fall blooms as well. In my opinion, very well worth growing. Will be interesting to see if they have re-seeded for plants this coming spring.
