Great plant

Seeds were sown in February and like the Astra Pink that I purchased, they took about 4 weeks to germinated. However, the put size on more quickly than the Astra Pink did once I bumped them up from plug trays to 4.5" pots. Once planted in the ground, the plants adapted quickly. Some plants are blooming already and plants are more floppy than the Astra Pink plants that I have in my garden.

Superb for bouquets & border

I started Komachi from seed 8-years ago and my plants are still going strong. It is a good 'blue' that is hard to achieve in the garden - especially from mid-summer to fall. It is long lasting in the vase. Its season of bloom takes it well past other perennials. Komachi is not invasive but will politely re-seed itself at a rate much like digitalis (foxglove). Tall enough to be a spectacular companion with oriental lilies - but rarely needs staking.
