They can grow 6 to 9 inches tall (15 to 23 centimeters) and 6 to 12 inches wide (15 to 30 centimeters.) These plants can grow in calcareous soil, woodland soil, rocky ledges, or along streams. They appreciate full sun to partial shade. It makes for a great cover plant. This flower is well known for its unique crested flower. Their unusual shape, bright blue color and yellow crested accents make them a highlight to any flower bed.
Best developed in naturally rich, medium dampness, all around depleted soils in full sun to part shade. Best to a limited extent shade. Will endure near full shade. On the off chance that developed in full sun, the dirt must be kept reliably wet. It expands well on very much depleted slants.
