I am so impressedthat this hardy and unusual Bulgarian Catchfly performs so well in our temperate climate. My favorite kind of faithful perennial- increasing in width and bloom each year! Strong upright “drumsticks” begin flowering in late Spring revealing truly fascinating spherical clusters 2 ½” across made up of small rich carmine blooms held in dark wine bracts sporting bright blue anthers - very striking!Pretty even when not in bloom with its rosette of fresh looking spring green oblong leaves. Wonderful cut flowers! Deciduous. To 18” x 15”.
