    Spires of deepest blue and pale, moonlit white, emerge above a verdant cushion of mid-green foliage. 'Sea of Butterflies' attracts insects and gardeners alike with blooms lasting from summer until the first frosts. Either mass plant at the front of borders or pop into pots and containers for a long-lasting summer bedding display.
    Garden care:


    Pot up and grow on under glass until all risk of frost has passed and they can then either be planted outside into a well-prepared bed, or used to fill decorative pots for the patio. Pinching out the growing tips will encourage them to become bushier, and feeding with a high-potash fertiliser at regular intervals throughout the summer will promote even more flowers to form.
