We offer quite a few plants in the Acanthus Family because they perform so well in the heat, giving us loads of colorful flowers. Blepharis is a genus within this family not often encountered, especially here in the US. We've grown this particular species for ten years after collecting it in Kenya back in 2002 and have enjoyed its unique basket-like clusters of true blue flowers. Because of its toughness, ease of growth and great performance in containers, we decided to offer it for the first time in 2012. I guarantee you that probably no horticulturist or gardener will be able to identify this plant in your garden.
