Isotoma axillaris is a woody-based perennial that grows as an upright mound of branched stems to 6-12'' tall. It may be grown outdoors year-round only in frost free areas, but is easily grown as an annual in colder climates. The elongated, pinnatisect leaves with narrow lobes are produced on upright, branched stems from a woody base. Features light blue to purple blue, blue, pink or white star-shaped flowers. A profusion of star-shaped flowers are produced just above the foliage throughout the season until frost.
