Cupid's Dart (Catanache)
Cupid’s Dart (Catananche caerulea) is a perennial wildflower grown for its tall stems of charming lavender-blue flowers that appear in mid-summer, attracting butterflies. Flowers bloom on tall, wiry stems over low, grassy foliage. Catananche is a popular cottage garden species that mixes easily into the perennial border where it will re-seed itself when happy. Excellent for mass planting, and fresh or dried flowers.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
