Centaurea montana ‘Amethyst in Snow’


Bachelor’s Button

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.125.140


A special selection of Perennial Cornflower, forming a low mound of grey-green leaves with an early summer display of shaggy flowers. Petals are white, held together by a deep purple base for a bicolor effect. A good choice for near the front of the border, in full sun to part shade. Remove faded blooms to prevent self seeding. Plants may benefit from a hard cutting back in midsummer to rejuvenate the foliage. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#18284: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
