centaurea - bachelor's buttons


These sweet honey-scented flowers were named in honor of the 17th century Turkish sultan who brought them back from his travels. Their softly fringed thistle-like blooms are found in delicate shades of lilac, rose, white, or purple and make wonderful cut flowers when picked just as they open. Sow outside in early spring. Packet includes 50 seeds.
