The Cupids Dart, 'Catananche caerulea', is a truly low maintenance perennial that blooms the first year from seed. The flowers are blue, darker towards the center with contrasting yellow stamens. Cupids Dart blooms in early summer and then blooms off and on until first frost. The raggedy petaled, lavender blue daisies bloom profusely for several weeks. This plant historically was used to trap the unwary heart, hence the name.Cupids Dart prefer full sun and well drained soil, particularly in winter when wet soil can cause the plant to rot. They are drought tolerant and allow soil to dry out between waterings. Plant in early spring, 2 to 4 weeks before last average frost date. The Cupids Dart makes a long lasting cut flower, and they will naturalize in wildflower plantings.
