Armenian Basket Flower (Centaurea Macrocephala) 50 seeds (#1046)

This is a large-growing perennial best used towards the back of a sunny border. Plants form a clump of coarse, light-green leaves, bearing stems of large, shaggy thistle-like flowers with bright canary-yellow petals. Excellent for cutting, fresh or dried, and sometimes used by commercial florists. Plants are not invasive or weedy in the least. Dislikes being divided or moved once established.
Extremely hardy, and a good choice for gardeners in prairie regions. Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun.

Approximately 50 seeds in 1 g packet.
