The leaves are stalked, lanceolate and unlobed.
Flowers are 3/4"-1.5" wide, blue, lavender, pink or white petals radiating from an minuscule disk. There are two rows of petals-the inner are longer and erect, the outer are shorter and spreading.

Its range is Native to Europe; now naturalized throughout continental North America, except Alaska and arctic Canada.
