Jacque ~
This blue Lithodora doesn't seem to spread really fast.
Sort of goes rather dead at the base and produces new shoots at the ends.
I've taken a few cuttings from mine and was glad I did, because I lost a lot of the original plant during the ice and snow of February.

Thanx 4 the Info TT sorry u lost some in the winter :/

Beautiful blue flower.

Lovely photo. I first saw this about three years ago on Gardeners World and eventually found a plant at the Beth Chatto gardens. It really is an intense blue and one of my favourites. Mine has gone a bit 'woody', so I'm going to take Terratoonie's advice and try rooting a few cuttings.

agreeing with all the other comments. Great shot also. There's something special about blue flowers. Wondering which camera and lens you used for this macro. Am trying to decide on a macro lens. thanks. Alandra
