    Beautiful blue eyes!!

    Posted by S. Taylor on 12th Jul 2010

    I just love the color of these little flowers. Martha Stewart introduced me to these little gems. Their low profile and bushy unusual leaves makes them wonderful for containers or the front edge of a garden display. I have to warn you that rabbits love them! If you have wild rabbits in the neighborhood, make sure you protect these little blue eyes by putting them up high and out of reach. They are well worth the effort that goes into planting and germinating these tiny seeds. They are not common in most seed catalogues, so they will be the talk of the neighborhood when they are in full show!!
