Two to three foot tall slender perennial. Small, deep blue flowers. Narrow leaves. Upright form was collected by Pat McNeal of Texas in the Davis Mountains at 4,000' in Davis County, Texas. The needle-thin, green leaves adorn the 3' tall stems and in September it bursts forth at the tips with vivid, dark cobalt-blue flowers. Native to the Trans-Pecos region, it is found in dry, gravelly, mountainous washes.
Sun, various soils. Good drainage.
