This delicate desert plant blooms almost overnight with one of the richest, inky-blue flowers in the plant kingdom. Of course, it is drought-resistant, but responds to normal rainfall and watering, forgetting all about its desert home. Also called Desert Bell, or Desert Bluebell, this little wildflower is a treat for Easterners and Midwesterners who have rarely seen it. Along with wild baby’s breath (Gypsophila elegans), this is the very earliest bloom in newly-seeded meadows.
