A great variation of the blue Cornflower. This black Cornflower has rich deep mauve double flowers, showing in clusters on strong wiry stems from June right through to the first frost. Growing to about 75cm in height, these look great in a border, grown together in groups. Contrasts well with Verbena, Monarda and Knautia – all available from our shop. Also makes a very good cut flower.
Centaurea likes full sun and a rich well drained soil. Regular feeding and water will increase the flowering.
Pack of approx 100 seeds. Sow in the autumn/winter for an early start or sow directly in the soil in the spring. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
