Skyflower is a herbaceous perennial wildflower that goes largely unnoticed — that is, until its brilliant blue blooms appear. The flowers tend to open in the morning and fade toward the end of the day, so it's best to look for them early in the day.
The flowers don't produce much nectar, so butterflies are infrequent visitors. They attract mostly bees, which are necessary for the plant’s self-pollination.
