In 2005, we received this as a gift from customer Joe Orndorff who speculated about its ancestry. We have been so pleased with it that we want others to enjoy its incredibly long bloom period which lasts into the fall. The flowers bloom in the leaf axils of the upper 10 inches of the very tall bloom spikes. They are tubular and medium blue purple with more lightly colored interiors. Interestingly, the mid-green leaves are very soft, lightly hairy on both surfaces and slightly sticky to the touch.
