Magical Summer Flowers
These take awhile to blossom, but it is well worth the wait. I had wanted to grow these for years, but they never made the list. They do well in New England. These come in vibrant hues of indigo and periwinkle. They are gorgeous and they really pop against my zinnias. They made a wonderful cut flower, and are a nice accent flower to any arrangement. I will be growing these from now on.
