perfect for pollinators

Centaurea montana is a perennial cornflower in a striking rich showy blue.  Also known as Mountain Cornflower or Bachelor's Button they are a pretty addition to the garden. Flowers are fringed and sit above thistle-like centres. 

Flowering from late spring through until early summer and often will flower again later in summer and into autumn.  The foliage is an attractive silvery grey-green.  Plants are happy in full sun or partial shade and they like an average dry to medium but well-drained position in the garden.  These plants are prolific self-sowers when they like their position so be sure to deadhead them if you do not want then to colonise where they are.

Plants are long-lived easy to grow and are drought tolerant once established. A perfect choice for a cottage garden, coastal gardens, gravel and rock gardens as well as butterfly gardens and are a perfect plant for naturalising due to their self-sowing ability.  Divide every few years to maintain their flowering potential.

A fabulous cut flower as well so plenty going for these little plants! This plant looks lovely planted with  Hosta plantiginea grandiflora and also Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata Ruby Port
