Now I know you’ve all got these in your gardens…the perennial cornflower (Centaurea)…but sometimes ‘common’ blooms just pass you by, then you stop, look closer & wonder why the heck you’ve not got your mitts on these before.
I worked in a garden recently that had a carpet of these blue beauties that quite simply took my breath away.
So I got 1 or 2 to start my own swathe and then I bought this…..
….Centaurea ‘Purple Heart’.
What can I say…it’s simply stunning. It starts off with white petals that turn to a mid-pink as it ages.
