Picture Thanks to Annie’s Annuals

This pretty plant absolutely blooms its heart out for about 2 months in summer, totally covering the bush in rich deep blue flowers.  It can then be cut back to about 10cm and it will reward you with another   flush of flowers. It can tolerate some drought , but is best in full sun in rich moist soil. It may over winter in mild areas, but is generally considered to be an annual.  It will self seed with good manners, if the situation suits it.
