Crystal Fountain™ is one of the more unusual varieties. The first petals are an wide, oval, leaf-like shape with sharply pointed tips that are a remarkable shade of deep, periwinkle blue. The inner petals are just slightly lighter, but are profusely growing, wispy and slender, mimicking the fountain-like bursts of fireworks or an exceptionally pretty water fountain. These incredible blossoms are 4-5-inches across, start blooming in June and repeat bloom through September. Crystal Fountain's compact habit makes it ideal for containers, trellis training or even weaving in and amongst small shrubs. You just have to see this one!
