Plant Features

Centaurea Black Sprite Bachelors Button Plant is a fanciful sight to behold. Known to attract butterflies, its cornflower is so richly purple as to appear black, displaying a mass of silky thread-like petals forming a feathery blossom unlike any other. Atop lightly-colored, gray-green, shimmery foliage, this Bachelor's Button deserves a place of honor, front and center, where everyone can see it.
