Centaurea montana 'Amethyst in Snow'
This new Dutch introduction of Cornflower has large flared flowers of silky white and purple centers which gives a kaleidoscope effect and a great contrast to dark foliage. ‘Amethyst in Snow’ tolerates dry soil and naturalizes well with other Centaurea varieties. White and purple flowers appear between May and June. PP#18284.
Centaurea has spidery, rich reddish-centered blue flowers appearing a few at a time. It is vigorous; we cut this back after bloom so it stays neat-looking. Likes poor alkaline soil and good drainage. Attracts earthworms. Care tips: Cut back by two thirds after bloom for fresh foliage and rebloom.
