I didn't realise it had a scent, or is that just the blue one? I have the yellow, it has almost finished flowering and have kept 1/2 doz pods to develop for seed, as not long lived.

So I understand Sue, looking forward to seeing this grow, although have no idea where to site it, needs light free draining soil, which we do not have!!

My one is in heavy soil, at the corner of the bungalow, not sure it will overwinter again, hence the seed.

How long has it been there?......have just found another blue!! want one?

Planted mine out last year, seed from my neighbour down the road. She can't keep hers more than a couple of years. Your blue is nicer than hers, which is a dull slate blue colour.

I can save you some seeds or you can have one of the plants?
