Popping, true-blue flowers bring bounding color to every garden. Erica first fell in love with Miss Jekyll Blue in 1998 as a farm apprentice at the University of California and this love affair still flourishes. Up-close the blue flowers are elaborately delightful, and with time, transform into intricate purple-striped pods that continue to dazzle.

Bring the beauty inside - flowers and pods make great cut flowers and will enliven any homes. The flowers and pods are great for dried flower crafts and arrangements. An English heirloom from the 1800’s that still continues to captivate. Plants are 12-24” tall and can grow in pots. Best direct seeded. Plants may re-seed but won’t become a weed. All parts of the plant are toxic and should not be consumed.

65-70 days to maturity.

Sow seeds directly (outside) around 5/1 in a full sun location. Sow seeds in rows 2-9” apart. Seeds should be planted very shallow (1/8” deep.) Alternatively, scatter seeds and cover lightly with soil by dragging the back of a rake. Keep seeds moist until germination. Days to germination: 10-21 at 60°F. Seeds sown in early spring will bloom mid June. For continuous flower production, sow new seeds every 2-3 weeks spring through mid July. Water plants regularly. Plants will re-seed unless you remove the seed pods.
