Centaurea montana ‘Gold Bullion’

Bachelor’s Button

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.125.150

A special selection of Blue Cornflower, or Mountain Bluet, forming a low mound of chartreuse-yellow leaves with a late spring display of shaggy blue flowers. A good choice for near the front of the border, in full sun to part shade. Remove faded blooms to prevent self seeding. Also remove any green-leaved portions or green seedlings if they should appear. Plants may benefit from a hard cutting back in June to rejuvenate the foliage. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#10865: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
