Centaurea are trouble-free and easy to grow. Unusual buds open to provide fringed, thistlelike blooms.
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.
Our plants are all grown in plantable fiber pots that grow incredibly vigorous plants, eliminate transplant shock, and are 100% biodegradable. They have tremendous advantages over plastic pots.
