Cupid's dart is a short-lived perennial that originates from southwestern Europe. It forms clumps of grassy leaves which are accented by single blue to blue-lilac, white flowers with dark centers from midsummer to fall.
Cupid's dart is adaptable but best when grown in gritty, well drained soil and full sun. The plant will degrade and expire much more quickly in a heavy or overly wet soil. It is ideal for border plantings, cutflowers and dried flower arrangements.
