Thank you very much for a rapid delivery!I have had a bad experience with mail ordered plants before, which were not good quality to start with and died within a week of their arrival but this time I was really impressed with the quality of the plants ordered; as the weather was not suitable to plant them, they have been sitting in my garage for three weeks now and they are producing lots of shoots and leaves and look really strong.They are worth every penny! I will definately recommend your nursery as I was so impressed with your service.It's a shame I did'nt find your website before.

This really is a lovely plant. Growing to around 12" (30 cm) tall, the thin grass like leaves terminate in a pretty blue flower - almost like a miniature Iris in appearance.

Each flower lasts, at best, a day (hence the name Dayflower) - but usually has started to shrivel by just after lunch. But as each stem has multiple flowering bracts the overall flowering season is very long. A really worthwhile addition to the garden and an excellent groundcover for the summer.

Come the winter they die right back to nothing - though will 'come back' the following spring from their tuberous roots.

  • Thrive in a moist but well-drained soil.
  • Prefer sun or partial shade.
  • For ground cover purposes plant 10" (25 cm) apart.
