This self seeding perennial has a blue to purple flower and is ideal for intermountain west climates since it loves full sun and does not require a lot of moisture. Leaving the flowers to drop seeds will assure more plants next year. Of course, if you don't want more, be sure to deadhead these. Birds appreciate the seeds in the winter. Cutting back the plant (almost to ground level) after it flowers will bring you another crop of flowers later in the summer.
