While it’s beautiful on its own or hung in planters, it’s when planted in huge borders or in large areas that this stunning plant really shines. If there’s enough of it, it quite literally looks like one giant carpet of dazzling blue flowers, which some even consider hypnotic, hence the name “blue daze.”
This plant has many different planting or landscaping options, including:
- Container planting
- Ground cover
- Large areas
- Alpine gardens
- Coastal/saltwater gardens
- Edging or borders
- Mass planting
How to Care for These Flowers
While you already know that these flowers are suitable for ground cover, they’re also a perennial that will come back year after year, and they work just as well in hanging pots or containers. They’re also perfect for rock gardens, as they will cascade attractively and cover bare spaces between stones. When hung in a pot, the tendrils and flowers will hang down over the pot’s sides with a pleasing effect.
They’re also self-cleaning, so you don’t have to spend any time deadheading to make it bloom again. However, deadheading can be done if desired. It does help encourage the blooms to return, but it’s not a necessity like it is with some other plants. Another great benefit of growing these beautiful flowers is that deer don’t really like it—so you don’t have to worry about waking up and seeing your flower bed has been munched down to the dirt.
