Widespread production of plants under this name from seeds has made it nearly impossible to say which, if any, still in commerce might be the "real" 'Peter Pan'. However, this one is at least close to the original. It forms dense, compact clumps with narrow leaves. The flowering stems are about 12 inches high, carrying small umbels of lavender-blue flowers in summer and fall.
