Centaurea General Information

Centaurea are trouble-free and easy to grow. Unusual buds open to provide fringed, thistle-like blooms. Foliage varies in texture, color and shape. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Centaurea Plant Care

Can be cut back by 2/3rds after blooming to freshen foliage. Prefers a normal to alkaline soil. Will spread to fill in. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring or fall.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
