I had heard of shrimp plant, but blue shrimp plant? I'd never heard of it, much less seen it. But here it was, cerinthe major purpurascens, for sale on ebay, when I was buying poppy seeds for my meadow. And the pictures, breathtaking. The deep blue color of the shrimp. The blueish-green of the leaves. And almost 100% germination from the seeds. I bit and bought. And now I have shrimp plant leaves emerging in my garden.
We'll follow this plant story as it develops. And who knows, I may have seeds to share next season with all of you!
