What does Cupid's Dart look like? I have a plant identified as that, but is over 4 ft tall with large branching stalks and yellow cup-like flowers. Huge greenery, rather obscure flower.

Cupid's Dart is Catananche caerulea, a wispy, free-flowering plant from Europe. The grassy leaves are gray-green, forming a clump to 1' high and wide. Lavender blue 2" flowers appear on leafless 2' high stems. If your plant doesn't match this description, you must have something else!
