Description
 
Absolute rock hardy jewel from Lebanon and Syria.   Well. it's rock hardy here anyway - we know that means something entirely different in Minot.  This is perfect for our area as it is winter growing and summer dormant so our Mediterranean dry summers feels a lot like home to it.  Surprisingly, it has been very tolerant of being watered all the time while dormant so it is more cosmopolitan than one might guess its geography.  Blooms in late spring with lots of lavender-blue flowers on stems up to 18" and after flowering it disappears until Fall.  Not often available and we have the inimitable John Flintoff to thank for sharing this with us.
