Such a pretty plant with that nice blue flower - you will have a gazillion of them this year!

RE: Nicandra

Ah, no, I decided that this was one plant that I did not want (although I am reconsidering) in my garden. The flowers are very small and last only a day (if I remember correctly) and the plant is very big. I got rid of it before it went to seed.

Yup, that's how I felt about it too. Really too big for my space; it's claimed to be good for keeping the whitefly away but didn't work for me.
