Blue Seas Statice: Blooms on my Second-year Plants

When I first ordered seeds for Blue Seas Statice, I had no idea they would take until the second year to bloom.

The poor things did go through a lot of trauma--poor soil, heat, and being chopped up by the yard care man's weed eater on multiple occasions.  Yet they kept growing back, and I kept hoping as long as they kept growing.

Now the first one is just barely beginning to bloom, and I'm completely delighted with the color--as much as I hoped I would be.  Which of course means I'd better get some seeds started so I can enjoy them again next year.

We ordered ours from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, and you can still find the same variety.

  1. What a beautiful blue. And you can dry them too. So worth growing.


Greetings, fellow climbers! Leave your marks on the steps--I'll be delighted to hear from you.
