(Caraway)

The aromatic, strong-tasting seeds of caraway are best known as a flavor in rye bread. This Eurasian herb is a hardy biennial.

Caraway seeds are most popular in northern and eastern European and Russian cooking.

Clumps of feathery foliage are produced by caraway plants in the spring and summer of the first...

(Blue Cupids Dart, Cupid's Dart)

Cupid's dart is a short-lived perennial that originates from southwestern Europe. It forms clumps of grassy leaves which are accented by single blue to blue-lilac flowers with dark centers from midsummer to fall.

Cupid's dart is adaptable but best when grown in gritty, well drained soil and full sun. The plant will degrade and expire much more quickly in a heavy or overly wet soil. It is ideal for border plantings, cutflowers and dried flower arrangements.

(Mountain Bluet, Perennial Cornflower)

Native to the mountainous regions of Central Europe, mountain bluet is a perennial that thrives in temperate climates with drier soils. Plants form low mounds of gray-green, lance-shaped leaves from which arise stems of single blue feathery flowers in late spring to summer. This montane plant is great for rock or alpine gardens as well as perennial borders. Plants tend to self-seed, so spent flowers should be removed. Divide these perennials every two to three years for best growth.
