Hi, quick question, sorry if its a stupid one! Are the blue flowers on the plant thats at the fore front with the orange bits on, or are they two different plants? Ive been looking through my flower guide and couldnt find a plant with blue flowers and orange bits, so thought i would check! Thanks

non-native

Sorry, but yes, they are part of the same plant so I think maybe it isn't a native plant. Thank you

Ceratostigma

I agree! This is a hardy plumbago. Low growing, garden shrub with blue phlox-like flowers. Foliage may turn red in autumn.
