FLOWER-CHINESE HOUSES (SALE)
SEEDS PER PACK: 300
FLOWER-CHINESE HOUSES has a striking resemblance to towering pagodas, these flowers are low growing, & form a carpet of purple to blue in spring & early summer. Native to California, not China. The flowers are intensely attractive to bees & other pollinators, & work really well at the front of a border or planted in mass settings. Grows in sun or part shade, but best if gets some shade. 30-60cm tall plants. Excellent for beds & borders.
Any moist, fertile, well-drained soil is ok. Heterophylla tolerates dry soil, but in very hot weather it tends to stop blooming. Deadhead regularly, and be prepared for some self-sowing.
