Cerinthe, Kiwi Blue


$ 3.95

Cerinthe, Kiwi Blue  ORGANIC

Cerinth overwinters spectacularly in our Zone 7 fields and is the first thing to bloom amongst all overwintered annuals, and flowers even before our anemones!  The Kiwi Blue produces cascading grey-green speckled foliage that terminated in a blue-purple bract.  This bract is the attraction of Cerinthe, but it actually hides a diminutive flower, and in this way is very similar to statice.  Cerinthe is also known as honeywort and it provides early season forage for bumblebees.  Grown by FLA.
