SORRY, CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. The flowers, with lilac blue petals around a central deep blue eye, float on wiry stems above a rosette of toothed silvery grey leaves. The big silvery buds, which precede the flowers, are themselves very attractive. Likes the sun and well drained soil. 2 to 3 feet. 1 litre pot.

This is the plant known as Cupid's Dart, supposedly because in classical times it was an ingredient in love potions.

Very floriferous, but dead-heading can help keep the show going.

Nice video clip of some Catananche Caerulea in flower, but turn down the volume on the audio, which features some annoying music:

  • Height 24 to 36 in
