Comments - Here is a great annual that comes from Australia. Fan Flower is a drought tolerant plant that grows low and sprawls widely. It can be grown in containers but it will quickly overtake over plants so it is best planted alone. It looks great in hanging baskets. It can also be grown in the ground. It blooms profusely all summer long and the blue flowers are very showy. The flowers are about 1 inch across and the five petals are in a half circle, all on one side, which makes them look like little hand fans.
