Catananche caerulea

Cupid's Dart

Cupid's Dart is a low-maintenance, clump-former that produces wiry stems of lavender blue blooms with darker centers in mid to late summer. The narrow, grass like foliage gets 8"-12" tall. Great for massing or cutting gardens.

Prefers full sun and moist, well-drained soils. Avoid heavy clay. May be short-lived, but will self sow if a few blooms are allowed to go to seed.
