Cerinthe, Kiwi Blue (70 days) Cerinthe major purpurescens
Cerinthe overwinters spectacularly in our Zone 7 fields and is the first thing to bloom amongst all overwintered annuals and flowers even before our anemones! The Kiwi Blue produces cascading grey-green speckled foliage that terminates in a blue-purple bract. This showy bract is the attraction of Cerinthe, but it actually hides a diminutive flower, and in this way is very similar to statice. An annual that grows up to 30”; space 12” apart. FLA.
