Re: Re: Spring is here!

Did you write that?
We tried P. 'Brise d'Anjou' in the display gardens a few years ago, and,
just as you said, it disappeared. Consequently I never tried it myself.
However, recently I have been seeing some new look-alike cultivars
coming on the market that are touted as being much more durable than

I grow a lovely one called P. 'Apricot Delight' from seed. Though it has
no leaf variegation, it does have lovely flowers that can be anywhere
from soft apricot to pink to blue. The flowers are supposed to be blue
(the stamens give it the apricot name)It's an easy one to start and the
only problem I had with it was that I didn't know they'd get so big so
fast. Planted them too close together and they developed mildew. Must
have good air circulation.

Several years ago the introduction of Polemonium caeruleum 'Brise d'Anjou'
at Canada Blooms caused quite a commotion. Although it was selling for a
king's ransom, it sold out.
I was smitten by its beauty but with our hot dry summers, it has twice
disappeared. If you are moving this beautiful little plant, I suspect it
would like the coldest area you can find..
Up here it appears to be guaranteed to put a little magic in your garden .

To a Departed Friend

My cheerful, charming, Brise d'Anjou
The most pleasant plant that ever grew
With your lacy leaf ladders, twas love at first sight
You glimmered by day, you glowed at night.
But, what cursed blight has got you vexed?
You're here one day and gone the next
Leaving a void with your hasty depart
Not just in my garden, but also my heart.

Has anyone succeeded in getting it to thrive?
