Graceful perennial with deeply lobed green leaves and tall wiry stems with spikes of double medium blue blossoms with a white bee in summer and into the fall. Great accent for the back of the border, good cut flowers. A tall old fashioned garden classic. Toxic if eaten.

Prefer moist well-drained, fertile soil. Feed in early spring with a high phosphorous fertilizer prior to new growth. Cut to ground in fall to encourage compact new growth in spring. Remove spent spikes after blooming to promote new growth. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
