Charming, 1", sky-blue flowers open at dawn on airy and gracefully arching stems. Flowers last one day but are replaced the next morning providing constant color. Plants withstand summer heat, humidity, winter cold, poor soils, drought conditions, and will also grow in part shade. Plant in groups or mix with other wildflowers as effective erosion control.
