Description

An early bloomer, this flowers long and hard for most of spring, perfect for naturalising under shrubs, hedges and trees to merge into a glowing river of soft blue.

Care Tips

Avoid overcrowding as they like their space, and will naturalise areas under trees and shrubs if left undisturbed. They do well in pots too.
