Have you grown our CA native “Bird’s Eyes” yet? Oh, but you must! Much visited by bees, they are so easy and exude the sweetness of Spring thru their flowers, form and lovely chocolate scent! Extremely floriferous, you’ll get hundreds of these entrancing, 1/2” light blue or violet flowers, set off by powder-blue stamen and a yellow throat with a dark purple ring at the top. Blooms on bushy, ferny upright stems. Highly rewarding, this neglect-tolerant heart stealer looks great in any type of garden, self-sows and makes great old-fashioned bouquets. Magical with roses! To 24” x 18.”
