Pure blue flowers. Slender grassy leaves. Long flowering season. Native. Happy in clay soil. And the clincher - it will grow under gum trees. Got to be a winner.

DESCRIPTION: Small grassy native clumping plant with an abundance of true blue flowers in spring and summer.
USE IN: Will grow under gum trees which we know will make many gardeners very happy. Good bank binder. Lovely naturalised in paddocks, or in native gardens, front of borders.

CARE: Provide plenty of water during the first 12 weeks or until the plant is established; water in very dry periods after that. Mulch after planting and annually to keep weeds at bay. Feed with native fertiliser during spring and summer. Remove the old flower stems in autumn and give it a tidy up.
