Saw this yesterday in one of the gardens. I was taken with it, like the blue green leaves and flowers.

Could someone tell me what is?

Thanks image

    No picture?

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Yup Cerinthe, like you Dove I can never remember the name. For about 30 years I could never remember the name 'Aubretia', it kept coming into my brain as 'Anchovy'. Then I made myself always think of some old Brit actor in 1930's Hollywood, called C. Aubrey Something and associated the name with the plant. Even now I have to think of his face to name that d...n plant.image
