A favourite of flower arrangers, the papery, bright blue dandelion-shaped blossoms are excellent for cutting, fresh or dried. Plants form a low clump of narrow grey-green leaves, the flowers appearing on upright stems in summer. Remove faded blooms to encourage more buds to form. Short-lived, but will often self sow. Choose a bright, sunny site with better than average drainage. Drought tolerant, once established. In the ancient language of flowers, Cupid’s Dart symbolizes love.
