Long-spurred flowers are usually bicolor with contrasting lips. Blooms are yellow, blue, purple, or violet. Excellent cut flowers. Plant them as edging, borders, or in rock gardens. They are easy to grow in full sun and sandy, well-drained soil. Grow as an annual where summers are hot. Add to your plants by division. Grown from seed, they bloom the second year.
