|Blooms late spring to early summer|
Cultivar Notes - 'Rosea'
Deeply fringed, rose-pink flowers appear from late spring to early summer above mounds of coarsely cut foliage. These leaves grow up to 2 feet long and are divided into pinnate lobes. Butterflies can't resist the sweet nectar of the showy blooms.
Genus Notes - Centaurea
Centaurea takes its name from the mythological centaurs, who were said to have used the plants medicinally. Today, gardeners grow them for their colorful, thistle-like flowers, which look right at home in an informal garden and are excellent for cutting.
