Note: Closeup of white variant. I collected seeds this year. The seeds are noticeably paler than seeds from typical blue-flowered plants. I would like to move this plant to a safer location in my garden but I'm sure it would die if I disturbed its deep taproot. So I will germinate the seeds and maybe some will carry the white gene.
