Cold hardy perennial for moist shade!  When the environment is right it can be easy to grow.  Best growing in partial shade to light shade location in moist soil.  This is a hairy perennial similar like ornamental poppy.  Late spring to early summer with large blue singled flowers several flowers in the end of the flower stem.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  I have tried the online seed seller and purchased seeds from reliable sources but it seems this item is rare, many fake seeds and the worse in all is that seeds do not stay viable too long.   Anyways, if you are into this rare beauty, do your home work first and buy the fresh seeds or even better to find mature plants!  USDA Zones:3-8.  Mature size:2′-3′(H) X 1.5′-2′(W).  Propagate by seeds or division.

耐寒強健喜蔭喜濕的多年生草花!  環境適合的話就容易栽種.  最好栽種在半日照到散光處的濕潤土壤.  全株跟大花罌粟一樣被有細毛.  春末夏初頂生花序數朵開的是少見的藍色花. 花頗吸引蜂蝶. 試過幾次網購種子可是賣家賣的是假的種子或者根本孵不出來,孵不出不知道是否種子活性短的緣故.  總之,想要種植這種罕見的美花可要先做好功課!  植株耐寒不耐熱.  成熟株高2-3呎,寬幅1.5-2呎.  繁殖以種子或分株的方式來進行.
