Overall: I got one of these last year (2011), and it's already a firm favourite of mine. I'm now on my second year with it and it's masses of piercing blue tiny flowers and silvery/green foliage really are a joy to behold.
I've got mine in a shady position as it prefers this and it basically looks after itself. I was a bit concerned at early spring though, as when I went to cut it down to ground level there was nothing there! But soon enough it started to grow again, and it's a remarkably fast grower I have to say - you can see the change daily.
Once the flowers have finished it's still a really nice plant to look at because of its interesting foliage. I had a bit of chomping on it from snails last year, but only minimal damage was done. It likes a drink as well so on hot days or dry periods it needs a nice glug to pep it up again.
I love this plant, if you have a shaded spot that needs something to liven it up then I really would recommend it.
