Amazing Blue Duo

I am still amazed at the gorgeous blue of my "leadwort" or Plumbago .. it is such an almost true blue .. like that ever illusive blue poppy plant I tried to make happy in my garden for almost three years. There is a point when you just have to say "no' .. it just isn't going to work ... BIG sigh.
This is almost as good, especially paired with my "Crested Blue Gentian"
A lot of times I totally forget I have this little wonder .. it seems quite happy to be neglected .. forgotten .. ignored .. so on and so forth to the degree that THIS IS the perfect plant in the garden for me .. all performance and no bother ? how on earth can that be !!!

Deb .. it is a "blue" to be reckoned with .. I think it has been over looked in the plant world a bit !
