I'm hoping these are the 'Heavenly Blue' variety--Kris and Judy planted several varieties last year with pink, white and blue flowers, so we don't really know what these are. I did feel a bit like a 2nd grader bringing home my plastic cup with seedlings, though! Here's what I'm hoping it will look like :
