Description

‘Blue Pearl’ looks delicate, but is a strong grower and does very well in a lawn. It’s a beautiful pale colour, the outer petal surface feathered and dusted with mauve, the inner, a slightly paler shade, with a gold, washed-purple base to each one and a brilliantly contrasting orange stigma.

Care Tips

Can be naturalized easily in grass but wait until the foliage has died down in June to cut the grass.
