    Beautifully captured. Martha beat me to it – i have 3 blue ones like this and a pure white one. 🙂

    They are not hard to kill… they are bloody impossible to kill! I tried digging one out that was growing between two hedges – the plant was removed but i had left one or two roots underground. They spread and shooted under the hedges, meaning i now have 3 plants after digging one of my two plants out! I never water them, we’ve had a half inch of rain since October and many 35 Deg C days with blistering sunshine, and they are flowering wonderfully!?

    They will send roots out underground which may shoot some 3 metres from the main plant. Left untended they will take over your garden and, ultimately, the house!
