This plant has wonderful deep purple blue flowers on a compact plant which reaches about 50cm tall.  It can be used as a front of border plant to good effect, and is also a very good cut flower. It blooms in the first year from seed. If you cut back the spent flowers  from summer, it will rebloom for you in autumn.
