A dwarf strain that grows 30 inches tall or so. The plants have foliage with good compact habit with widely branching stems and many gentian blue, forget-me-not-like flowers. Grow in nitrogen poor soils with good drainage in full sun to part shade. Rich moist soils will produce very large bushy plants that bloom less and are more likely to die over winter (winter soils should be dry, not wet). Large seeds, easy to grow, will bloom the secound year.
