Blue thimble flower is a pretty addition to a wildflower meadow, roadside verge, cottage and mixed gardens, cutting.
When the meager wild grasses wither away on the dry, sunny soil in summer, the blue thimble flower is looking healthy and showing off its lavender-blue blossoms. A fast-growing annual wildflower, it's native to coastal western North America, from British Columbia to California. It will reseed itself annually, with new plants sprouting up each spring in a landscape.
Blue thimble flower grows erect with feathery green foliage. Each wispy leaf is double branched and comprises numerous short, thin leaflets. On stem tips, in late spring to late summer, ball-like tufts of blue flowers appear. Tthe flower head resembles a pincushion, somewhat like the flowers of a bachelor's button. Butterflies and bees dance around the blossoms to pollinate them and yield seeds by fall before frost kills the plant.
Grow blue thimble flower in a sunny location with a loose, light-textured sandy or gritty soil. The soil must be well-drained. Sow the seeds where plants are to grow, as transplanting does not yield good results. However, thin out the seedlings as they grow to promote the strongest, most vigorous plants with lots of light and air circulation.
