Catananche caerulea

Commonly called Cupid's dart, this perennial is loved for its blue to lavender-blue flowers with dark centers and grass-like, gray-green leaves. Expect blooms from mid-summer to fall (July - September). It became known as Cupid's dart when early Greeks and Romans used this plant to make love potions. 

Plant in full sun with loose, sandy-humousy soil. Does not tolerate clay/unamended soils very well. Prefers well-drained soil and does not like soil to be wet. 

A great option for those looking for a cottage garden look. Especially pretty when mass planted. Flowers can be used in fresh and dried arrangements. Plant with Eryngium, Dahlias and Convolvulus as companions.

Arrives to you in a quart-sized pot, as shown in photo 4.
