You can just see why this is called grandis. Its blue is so perfectly complemented by the orange-yellow of the anthers. It is not an easy plant to grow or germinate from seed. It tends to be monocarpic and it is suggested that it is not allowed to flower in its first year. It likes moist soil and plenty of sun. It only produces a few flowers per stem, but what an addition to any garden. There are many other crosses and species. The most similar is the M. bentonicfolia which produces many similarly coloured flowers, but slightly smaller.
