Best blue flowering plant

I am just about to sprinkle white annual lavatera in the gaps, then cover with a thin sprinkle of compost; I believe they don't like to be transplanted, tried it once, they were not happy.

Just had a thought, perhaps a thread on plant paintings that we have done/liked by other artists?

Sara 4, I think wild flowers are used to fairly poor soil; compost may be too rich for them. Best to check with the seed suppliers.
