What is This Plant?

I have a plant with blue star shaped flowers in our yard. Can anyone tell me the name of this plant? It is supposed to be a food source for butterflies? And how about info on the seed pods? What do they need in the way of sun/shade/food/water?

Thanks readers.

If it were not for the blue colour I would say that is a star magnolia because of the shape of the flower, the fuzzy pod, and the leaves. New variety?

Pretty sure it is Tweedia Caerulea.

Thanks, Catherine was right. I found out enough about this annual plant online that I will start saving seeds for next year for the Path Garden.
