HARDY PERENNIALS: CATANANCHE

C. caerulea. This is another cut-and-come again plant and the papery cornflowers on single 2 feet stems have good cutting qualities. The fleshy rooted plants are amazingly free and long flowering, June to September, but such profusion takes its toll in exhaustion after 3 or 4 years. The’Cupids Darts1—the folk name of this plant is best in sun and a well drained soil, and is very drought resistant. Increase is either from seed or root cuttings in spring 3 inches long, placed in a frame.
