A choice borage relative (and a much more polite one), this drought-tolerant, deer-resistant Greek has narrow evergreen leaves like a rosemary but in rosette arrangement. Its native habitat is among rocky cliffs from whence comes its apt name meaning "stone gift". Replicate its well-draining and rocky habitat (you don't have to have a cliff, though) and it will indeed be a gift. It forms dense, one foot tall and wide domes with sky-blue flowers. Slowly growing, difficult to propagate, but very worthwhile! I will say it straight out: It's a beautiful plant, in flower, form, and geometry. And unfortunately seldom seen! Flowering February through summer and intermittently into autumn - a non-stop gem.

Minimum temperature: 10° F
