Lovely half-hardy tuberous perennial. Fleshy stems bearing lance-shaped leaves provide a lovely background for the gentian blue flowers borne from late summer and into the autumn.

Commelina tuberosa 'Coelestis Group' can be grown in full sun or or little, perhaps dappled, shade. A sheltered well-drained site, facing more or less south will give you the best reults. Either dry mulch thoroughly to protect the tubers in winter, or lift them and protect in a frost free place. H: 45cm.
