The Chiffon series just got more exciting with the addition of this blue-flowered selection. It has the same vigorous growth and lacy blooms, but with large, single blue flowers. Each is adorned with a lacy center to create an anemone-like bloom. Bold yet delicate, Blue Chiffon is a star in the garden from late summer to fall. The distinctive flower color complements many popular late summer perennials.
