This little plant was planted here when I first moved in. And to be honest every year I totally forget about it until it sends up these beautiful blue flowers. 

Yesterday was no different. After cutting back some plants that are becoming unruly, I uncovered this little beauty hiding beneath. It really is a little beauty. I think when it's finished flowering I will move it to a place I know I will see it once it first flowers!!

The colour is gorgeous. I have found them to be short lived.

Jackie, it's an obliging little plant if it flowers despite being swamped by the foliage of other plants. It's a beautiful colour as well. It has more than earned its keep!

Thank you .......Mary these must be here now 4 or more years as this is our 5th Summer here. So hopefully they last some more years. 

Yes Moya definitely has   

Hope yours survived Hazel
