Received the email yesterday saying the plants had been despatched, arrived late morning today. All good, strong, healthy plants that were very well packaged and I'm sure they will romp away once planted. Customer service was excellent as well and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to my fellow gardeners.

Commelina dianthifolia 'Electric Blue'

  • An excellent summer ground cover.

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.
