Catananche caerulea 'Major'

Masses of papery blue flowers held on wiry stems all summer. Seed heads turn silver in late summer and stand well into autumn. Long season of interest as a result and great for a dried flower arrangement.

Sue's Notes

Makes a great show in our sunny dry front garden, flowering from mid-summer to first frosts, especially if I get round to dead-heading it.
