They have four petals, and the center of the petals is a bright yellow color.They grow on stems that have tiny leaves on them, and there is a base of small leaves at the bottom as well. Only one flower grows on each stem.
Bluets are a very cut and delicate flower. There not even an inch wide. But they do spread a little, and they stay in groups. Their light blue with five petals then they have a dark purple inside. These are great to cover the bald spots in your yard. They will also look great around a statue or walls in your yard.

It makes a great addition
The color is very subtle
The colors are bold and look good growing where I need it too
Saw an adult plant at a local store for about $4 more. I look forward to and hope I can grow it to a large plant.
