    Hi Mat

    what time of year and did you get any photos of the leaves

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • they were in full flower in the summer, died back a bit late summer, leaves were long and thin if that helps

    Looks like a Senetti image

    Search for Senetti Blue Bicolour. It should be that.

    It's only an annual but they do flower for a long period if deadheaded regularly image

    They tend to arrive in Garden Centres Mid-March down here

    I had some of these in a south facing porch in our old house and they flowered right through a mild winter one year!!image

    Fairly certain it is a Senetti. They are Spring and early summer flowering, and not fully hardy.

    There are ashtrays of emulsion,

    I did overwinter one of these once, in a cool greenhouse, but truth to tell it was not really worth the effort.  It never flowered well again, and really I could have given the space to something else - but you have to try these things once in a while.
