10-15cm. Lax stems bearing profuse, deep purple bell flowers in mid to late summer. Well-drained soil in sun. Sorry, none available this year. For sunny well-drained areas Suitable for a trough. Alpine/rock garden plant
12cm. Beautiful, comparatively large, soft blue flowers in June-July, with a repeat flowering in August, though fewer flowers second time around! It seemed fairly well behaved to me to begin with, but after a couple of seasons in a trough I found it started to run around in a rather intrusive manner, so I would recommend keeping it in a container of its own!! For sunny well-drained areas.

hard winters both in pots and in well-drained soil in a sunny area. Also good in a container.

Good in a container.
Keep just frost-free in winter (although I've never tested its hardiness).
