Everyone's telling me to get rid of it, as it's starting to get pretty big (5yrs old) it's already invaded an entire border and bushing onto the patio area now I've had to attack it the past week because you couldn't see through the kitchen window ;D and it was starting to block the central Heating flue.
When it's flowered I'm going to try and weave a bit of artistic pruning on it.
I thought it looked like Brunnera until I spotted the Omphawhatsit at Dunham Massy - it had nearly finished flowering but there were a few blue flowers idential to those Jenny photographed. I have to admit that it's something I'd like to have in my garden now - it made glorious ground cover. I do like my Brunnera Jack Frost though

I just realized I only have blues in Spring. hm I might want to do something about that.
These blues are lovely Spru and RF.
Mind you I do not like ceanotus in general, to frilly small leaves and the flowers have a greyness to them. However as Ceanotus goes, that is one very impressive shrub you have Spru. Does well with the Pierris too. ( another shrub I won't plant ) As for the clem is it really that blue without the stripe you get for instance in the President? Pitty I have to take too many precautions to prevent wilt in the big flowered clems. Not for my garden either these.
Good I can enjoy them on here
