This is a wonderful blue.
How large does this plant grow.
Is it in flower now ?
I'm trying to get more autumn flowers into my garden.
Mine is very much a spring garden at the moment.:o)

This pic was taken today, 1/11/08. So it's in flower now. It is rather small and has around 25 flowers on it... only about 2 foot tall in total. However the other one I have is around 4 foot tall with lots more flowers. Don't know what the difference is between them! Sorry I can't be more help.

Very nice, ours flowers earlier than this and the flowers (thistles) are probably the size of golf balls but there are fewer of them. The plant is probably like your other one (about 4 feet tall). The bonus is, it that it's a nice, easy to grow perennial.
