Chaenorrhinum - Blue Dream

Chaenorrhinum - Blue Dream

A delightful tiny flower for the rockery and the front of borders, very much like a miniature antirrhinum. Thrives in full sun.

Can also be grown in containers (possibly even hanging baskets).

Described as a very pretty cushion plant, with deep green foliage and trailing sprays of blue flowers. Height 6" by 8" wide).

I have these in the front of the Gaura flowers (see other photos) on a small rockery which is in full sun for most of the day. The did bulk up very nicely and pretty quickly too and continued to flower all summer.

Attracts the smaller hoverflies and small bees.
