More Details

I love clear blue flowers in the border and cut for a vase, and there are few more radiant blue perennials than catananche. Flowers last for ages both in the garden and vase, and you can hang them upside down to dry for winter arranging.

Care Tips Cut back after flowering to encourage more blooms. Once established it has good drought resistance making it ideal for free draining soil. If grown on heavy soil it should be treated as a short-lived perennial.

Vase Life Strip the bottom leaves, and sear the stem ends for 10 seconds in boiling water and then place overnight in a bucket of cold water before arranging.
