Re: SPEC: I. setosa--Germination and Bloom

I bought some setosa seeds from Parks in S.Car. about 5-6 years ago, a cultivar called "Blue Lights".  It did not bloom until the 3rd year, and has never gotten any more than 8" tall, if that.  (I didn't measure and I'm going by memory on the height.)  It's very small, petite, short-lived flowers, but it has survived the Iowa winters without any special care.
The color is a delicate pale blue, just as the catalog and name indicate.
