These are new for me this year in my favorite category of flowers.....the self-sowing Annuals. I was not disappointed. To the contrary, I am quite delighted with them!
The flowers are aptly named, as they are a wonderful baby blue color with white inner eye and delicate black stamens. They grow to 10-12 inches, so are perfect for edging the flower border or in containers. They bloom for 6-8 weeks in spring to early summer.
These Baby Blue Eyes are planted in an old spatterware dishpan, along with some poached egg flower, also new to me this year. But that will have to be another post. :-)
The sky blue color compliments the other flower colors. These are winter sown plants. I will save the seeds and toss them around my flower beds to multiply them for next year. These are soooo sweet and cottage looking! An early flower in a color that you don't often see in the garden.....a winning combination!
