Catananche caerulea Major

OUT OF STOCK
Catananche caerulea Major is a superb hardy perennial that flowers from June through to September and reaches a height of up to 75cm. Also known as Cupid's Dart, this stunning flower produces delicate fringed purple flowers that have dark indigo and yellow hues within the centre. These wonderful flowers sit atop grey-green strap-shaped foliage that contrasts well against the eye-catching flowers. A great choice for adding colour to patio containers, the front of borders or to brighten up the home with a cheerful cut-flower bouquet. We recommend planting in well-drained, fertile soil in sunny or partially shaded areas where they will thrive. UK-grown 5cm modules supplied.
