After a long winter, any garden color is prized. Especially blue. This bag of 20 bulbs adds soft blue stars to garden edges, containers and devil strips. While it may seem odd to refer to these petite stars as "giants" this blue variety does, in fact, produce flowers that are notably larger. And lovelier.
