Delicate desert plant that blooms with brilliant blue color, bell shaped with 5 petals, about 1 inch in diameter flowers. The stems are reddish and hairy. This native annual adds wonderful deep blue to early spring, and is very adaptable to conditions.
This little wildflower is a treat for Easterners and Midwesterners who have rarely seen it. In most meadows, after bloom, it is quickly covered by taller growing species. It is drought-resistant, but responds to normal rainfall and watering, forgetting all about its desert home.
The plant attracts hummingbirds, bees and butterflies.
