June 15 — blue mystery flower

descanso 0609-2329-Edit

Here’s a pretty blue flower I can’t identify, so I turned to the web. No luck. These were growing in the flower beds between the rose garden and the train at Descanso Gardens. Does anyone know what these are?

  1. You’ve got me stumped with this one Pat. How tall is the plant? Leaf shape? Perhaps you can ask a gardener next time you are in the gardens? I hate not being able to identify plants, but I have several blue ones that remain nameless.

    • I can’t believe I stumped you! I’ll see what I can find out next time I go to Descanso. I didn’t see any blue flowers on Google images that matched this one, and I looked at a lot of photos. Thanks for looking, Jude. The flowers were small.

      • Thanks to Kenneth from me too!! I have seen loads of these around Ludlow, in gardens, self-seeded along pathways and on the common, and I have several photos of it too, but could never find out what it is. It’s stuff like this that makes blogging such fun.
