Basketflower, American, Aloha Mix

(90-100 days) Centaurea americana

The most intriguing new flower addition to the farm this year with its fascinating papery buds that look like little fairy baskets.  Buds give way to large 4-5” quill-petaled flowers abuzz with pollinators, and flowers dry well in bud, flower, or spent flower stage.  Grow like bachelor’s button (its close relative) and it holds 4-5 days in the vase.  Our mix includes seed from the Aloha Blanca and Aloha Rosa varieties so you’ll get both white and lavender flowers.  An annual growing up to 72”.  Best spaced 12” apart.

Packet: .5g ~50 seeds
