(Centaurea Americana) What an astonishing surprise this one was! Growing absurdly tall to 7’, they really piqued our curiosity when the buds began to form. Incredible latticework buds like botanical filigree followed by creamy white blossoms opening into large (5-6” across) fluffy blooms. Think bachelors buttons, which they share a genus with, but on an enormous scale. Hold great for 4-5 days in a vase as well as drying beautifully in either flower or spent bloom phases. The fragrance is lightly sweet and adds to the grandeur of these towering beauties.
