This pretty annual herb has asterlike flowers that bloom in pink, blue, violet or white. A lover of cool weather, it does well during the spring when planted in containers, rock gardens or flower beds. Free flowering daisy-like flowers in colors of blue, white and violet. It's fragrant blossoms are about 1 inch across on long stems. Its foliage is finely cut and feathery forming wide low growing mounds. Ideal for rock gardens and informal borders. It is a great cut flower. The plant is not particular about soil type but does prefer a sunny exposure. Expect the plant to be at its best during cool weather.
