Cupid's Dart is a great meadow plant or to grow in amongst other plants in borders. Masses of vivid violet-blue flowers bloom at the ends of wiry stems above slender grey-green foliage. It is a simple to grow perennial that blooms non-stop all summer long. The papery blue flowers attract all kinds of pollinators and are a specialty of butterflies. Clump forming and self seeding in the right conditions. Deadheading will encourage fresh flowers.
Full sun and well drained soil. Wonderful companion for roses and perfect with Lavenders for a long blooming light textured wave of flowers. The flowers close at night and like the silver seed heads give an attractive display.
