Superficially resembling annual cornflowers, this hardy perennial has erect, narrow leaves and solitary dark-centred, lavender-blue flowers each surrounded with silvery bracts throughout summer. Excellent as a cut flower, and very attractive to bees. Native to dry meadows in the Mediterranean, it is best grown in well-drained soil in full sun; good drought resistance. H: 60cm
