Centaurea cyanus
‘Blue Diadem’

Centaurea cyanus ‘Blue Diadem’ Centaurea cyanus ‘Blue Diadem’

How hard is it to find old-fashioned TALL “Bachelor Buttons” these days? Unless you grow them from seed, you’ll probably only find those squatty ones sprayed with dwarfing chemicals that will never look as charming as these! Bright, richest blue, 2.5” wide, edible blooms on upright 3’ branched stems is what you want and our favorite, ‘Blue Diadem,’ truly delivers! Perfect mid-bed, it makes the sweetest cut flowers. Rich soil is best, kiddies. To 1’ wide. Dead-head to prolong flowering, & you’ll have blooms Spring & Summer. Self-sows – woo-hoo!
