Great photo. Such a vibrant blue. I only have one plant ,but have not had many blooms from it yet. Perhaps I should feed it,or may be it likes full sun; I have it in dappled shade.

Thanks, Rose! Grows like a weed on my poor soil in full sun, but is prone to mildew - I've cut it all down now as it looked a terrible mess!
