Catalina wishbone flower blooms in a range of eye-catching colors, offering unusual hues in addition to the classic blue and white of older midnight flowers. For example, Midnight Blue, at upper left, sports a clear blue bloom with a yellow throat.
It’s self-cleaning, too, which means you won’t have to deadhead to keep plants looking tidy. Just scratch some slow-release fertilizer into the soil at planting time, then sit back and enjoy its eye-catching blooms!
