Average seed life: 1 year.


Honeywort's eucalyptus-esque, leathery foliage is a compelling silvery blue-green, making it a wonderful foliage plant even before the flowers appear. But the blooms push this plant over the top: nodding and hop-like, with dusky, deep blue, overlapping tepals shrouding a dark purple tubular flower.
