Is a wonderful plant for gardens in milder climates. Easy to propagate and cultivate; the plants are attractive throughout the year with evergreen leaves in neat clumps and intense blue flowers. The flowers are formed along the top part of the stem, tightly arranged on little branches forming small bunches of buds. There are a few hundred flowers along each stem, but they open only a few at a time and last for less than a day. The plants require full sun to semi-shade and a rich soil that is well drained, but not too dry and sandy. During the winter and spring the plants require plenty of water.
