Easy as pie and you’ll get loads of bloom over a period of months! A robust native to much of California, “Blue Thimble Flower” forms a bushy multi-branching annual to 15” tall by 12” across with dense, ferny, almost lacy, rich green foliage. Throughout Spring and well into Summer, it bears scented, lavender blue flowers held in spherical clusters and loved by butterflies, bees and more! Lovely with natives Layia platyglossa “Tidy Tips”or Clarkia concinna “Pink Ribbons”. Full sun provides best display. Self-sows.
