Gilia tricolor. Height to 30-45cm (12-18"). Bird's Eyes Gilia seeds are a charming California native wildflower that blooms from spring to mid-summer, producing long-lasting stems of chocolate-scented blue flowers with dark centres. These rise above the ferny foliage and open in sunshine, but close on cloudy days. This easy to grow, nectar-rich annual is attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. It will grow in any sandy, well-drained soil and is suitable for xeriscaping. Suitable for Zones 6 to 10, with a preference for milder weather.
