Coquet Bell

'Coquet Bell' has a ruffled edge to it's "skirt" that adds a flair to this blue tinged blossom. It was one of my heat champions this summer and has been covered with blossoms almost all year long. So many flowers, it is hard to just walk by it on the way to the others. The color blue always demands my attention. It doesn't grow very tall and it doesn't grow very fast, but I certainly consider it worthy of the wait. The bush you see in the second photo is two years old. It almost died in it's first year, because it was in the ground and the gophers got to it. So perhaps by next year it will prove me wrong and grow taller.
