Nemophila ‘Penny Black’
“Baby Black Eyes”

Nemophila ‘Penny Black’ “Baby Black Eyes” Nemophila ‘Penny Black’ “Baby Black Eyes”

Inspiring! Like a new color in your crayon box, this easy California native calls forth new color combo creativity! A compact 10” x 12”, it practically smothers itself with those luscious so-purple-they-look-black perfectly edged in white flowers.  So prolific you’ll hardly see the bright green, dense, almost succulent foliage once it starts blooming.  I loved it last year combined with CA native pals Limnanthes douglasii “Meadow Foam” & Nemophila menziesii “Snow White”. Or try it with Linaria reticulata ‘Flamenco’ for  a totally different garden thrill. Great for edging & adorable in Spring containers (at least 8” across). Blooms for several months with water and self-sows! Available until mid-April.
