Plant Features
The soft light, grayish-green foliage of the Amethyst Dream Centaurea is the perfect backdrop for these vividly colored, frilly and unique flowers. The leaves have minut silvery hairs which makes them appear so soft, and which mutes the green slightly, which in turn, absolutely makes these gorgeous royal purple flowers "pop". Simply stunning! Mountain bluet grows in sunny locations with moist, well-drained soils. They do tolerate drought conditions once they are established. Butterflies, bees and other insets enjoy the pollen and nectar while deer tend to stay away. A second late season bloom is possible if the plant is cut back to the ground after the first flush of flowers is over. Centaurea plants should be divided every 3-5 years.
