    Features

    FANCY, yet UNFUSSY.

    True blue flowers are never easy to find, but the truly difficult endeavor is finding true blue flowers on very heat tolerant plants. Blue My Mind Away Evolvulus is the equivalent of hitting the jackpot. True blue flowers, loves the heat and blooms all summer long. Blue My Mind® is perfect for creating containers and can be a great garden plant, but it has a hard time keeping up with other plants in combinations. Blue My Mind Away, is more vigorous so it will keep up well with other moderately vigorous plants. If you are planting a combination recipe, that vigor is needed. If you are planting just evolvulus, Blue My Mind will give you the best color show.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Blue My Mind loves hot weather, in fact, the hotter the better! It will perform best in full sun and needs to be protected from even light frost. It is drought tolerant, once it is established. Plants do need to be watered well for several weeks during root establishment. While the plants can withstand drought conditions, growth and flowering are better with consistent moisture. Deadheading is unnecessary. A good dose of compost or slow release fertilizer will improve performance.

    • I can't speak highly enough of this plant. In summer 2020, in a southerly suburb of Houston, I planted them in the ground and in pots and they thrived in both locations. In February 2021, Texas was hit with the worst freeze in recorded weather history, killing even large live oak trees. As what I thought to be a pointless precaution, I placed my potted Blues in the garage and covered those in the ground with a sheet, fully expecting to lose every plant, inside and out. Those in the unheated garage were not covered and suffered only minor damage. Those outside froze to the ground. All branches turned grey and brittle. Not a one escaped. In April, the outside plants began showing bits of green at their base. Today, every plant I placed in the ground not only survived but is flourishing and close to reaching their full 16" spread. All plants are in full bloom and just glorious!
