    Reviewer's comments:
         "I live in Springfield, Missouri (Southwest). I planted some of these from a seed catalog. Out here, they are viney. I was showing my girlfriend the flower for the first time at night. During the day, it is blue. But, at night, it is lavender with glistening blue hues in the center of the petals. The species is correct."
