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.
