Browallia

I have to say, I am very happy with the way white Browallia ("Silver Bells") is performing for me in quite heavy shade. Two thumbs up to this for nicely brightening up a dark woodland border here!

Next summer I want to include some of the purple ones -- "Marine Bells." Anyone know of a source for this?

I know Marine bells has been hard to find-except in bulk. I bought 'Blue bells' seeds from Burpee. Plants- I haven't been able to find.
Hope this helps,

I think I saw it at Guru Gardens/Patrick Studies but I can't check because their seed cat is now offline. I assume at some point it will go back up.

Specialty perrenials has something called "Jingle Bells Marine" for browallia. Not sure if that is what you want or not.
