Classic Magic Bachelors Buttons
Centaurea cyanus. A spellbinding mix of purple shades. Classic magic was a standout in our trials. Beautiful range of colours from dark purple with white tips to pale purple with mostly white. This easy to grow annual makes a great cutflower or border plant. Bachelors Buttons last well as a cutflower and are quite an attractor for bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. Excellent for successive plantings that display colour all season. Full sun. 30" in height. Approx. 220 seeds/pkg.
May be started early inside, but they grow and bloom very fast from direct seeding outside. Sow seed about 2 weeks before last frost. Just cover and they usually germinate in 7 days.
Successive sowings will provide blooms all season. Space 12 inches apart in full sun.
