Starshine™ Blue Star Flower

Laurentia axillaris

Star-shaped medium blue flowers and soft green foliage on a very well-branched plant with a round, mounded habit. A great filler in flower beds and mixed containers, or gently spilling from raised planters and hanging baskets. An early season annual.
