Gilia capitata or Globe Gilia as it is commonly known is easy to grow and blooms profusely from spring to autumn, displaying densely held, ball shaped clusters of medium to bright blue flowers on upright stems, 20-25cm tall.
Attractive, finely cut foliage appears mostly at the base of the plant. The plant is great as a cut flower.
Globe Gilia or Blue Thimble Flower, another common name, is one of the best annuals for attracting butterflies, and it also needs no summer water once established.
The plant will readily self-sow, giving you fresh, new plants every spring. Full sun provides best display.
