Oxypetalum caeruleum Heaven Born
A compact scrambling climber, Heaven Born exhibits dazzling, bright blue star-shaped blooms held high above gray-green foliage. This shade of blue is rarely seen in nature, and so will stand out in any setting before opening to reveal this unique and lovely shade. Buds form on 22-24 inch tall stems and are colored in shades of blue. Ideal for cut flowers, Qxypetalum can also be grown as a houseplant and may be overwintered indoors. Blooming mid-summer through fall, this variety enjoys full sun and rich, well drained soil. An excellent choice for containers and hanging baskets, Heavenly Blue attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. A half-hardy perennial in zones 8-10 but can be grown as an annual and will bloom the first year from seed. Pkt. 15
