Could you tell me the name of this blue flower?
Please, help me to find the name of this flower. It is really small and looks like a blue ball. These flowers look nice in the garden. (The photo is taken in France).
I would really want to know what this blue flower with a ball-like inflorescence is. Thank you.
Blue flower with a ball-like inflorescence
Small blue flower
It looks like Gilia capitata, common names are Blue-thimble-flower, Bluehead gilia, Blue field gilia, and Globe gilia. It is a flowering plant in the Polemoniaceae / phlox family. It is native to much of western North America from Alaska to northern Mexico, and it can be found on the eastern side of the continent as an introduced species.
Growing gilia wildflowers in the garden is not difficult if you live in a region with mild winter temperatures.
