$3.50$12.50

Centaurea cyanus.

Bachelor’s Button deserve a place in every garden. They are easy-to-grow, make a nice little cut flower, and pollinators love them. Frilly blossoms reach 2” across and are a lovely periwinkle blue color, the most common bachelor’s button color. The semi-dwarf plants grow to about 2′ and bloom over a long period, especially if dead-headed. Naturalizes easily if you don’t deadhead all of them. Won the All-American Selections silver medal in 1937 and it has been a favorite in the garden ever since. Drought tolerant and deer resistant. Annual that can handle light frost.
