Blue flowers

doris_mi5June 1, 2007

These were in a package of wildflower seeds I planted last year. I think they are so pretty and they bloom early in the morning by afternoon they all fall off but by morning they're blooming again. Does anyone know what they are?

I don't know what they are, but they sure are pretty!

Thanks Konrad. I couldn't get through on the link above but typed in flower and found it. It is a perennial and blooms a long time. It's a wild prarie flower.

That's a beautiful shade of blue- bet a bed of them would be pretty.

gmom74 I have five of them growing in my garden and yes they are very pretty. Seeing that they are perennials I am going to dig one up this fall for my daughter.

They are very beautiful. If you are going to let them go to seed I sure would like a few.

Maybe I can find some plants at our farmers market. That would be faster and easier. Why didn't I think of that in the first place?

Beautiful shade of blue! It's hard to find that color in a garden. So many "blues" are more purple or lavender.

Yes indeed blue flax...bought a package of seeds and planted 3-4 yrs ago and they look just beautiful in masses...from the beginning of planting them to when original plant dies is about three-four yrs(just from my experience) but they reseed readily...they are all over my garden!

Those are a nice blue.

Here are some blues from my garden yesterday. Balloon flower and lobelia.

rc. Very pretty. I love flowers of all kinds. I can buy perennials from a farm market for ninety nine cents each and every year I buy different plants. Some only last one year though. Especially delphiniums.
