Note: Kingfisher Daisy. 6 inches tall; intensely brilliant blue! full sun; ordinary, moist soil; blooms from early summer to fall. Annual. This is a real attention-getter in my garden. More people have asked me about this precious, little, blue daisy than any other single species. Stratify the seeds for 2-3 weeks. Source for seeds: Chiltern Seeds (England) and Seymour's Select Seeds (USA).
