This is a wonderful plant that produces cheerful daisy-like flowers in shades of blue and purple in March and April. These are perfect plants for naturalising in a mixed border around the base of deciduous shrubs or adding spring colour to the edge of a woodland garden. For maximum impact plant in bold drifts in September or October and if happy they should spread quite quickly.
