Bachelor Button (Centaurea cyanus)

With amazing sky-blue color, bachelor buttons look stunning in mass plantings. They are easy-to-grow, drought tolerant and edible petals add a fun garnish to salads! Bachelor buttons appear in many European folk tales and men of olden days would frequently wear a bloom on their lapel. 

Origin: We collected the parent seed of the colorful bachelor button mix from two sources. First, from a wheat field in Hungary while visiting family there and second from the garden of a friend in Asheville, NC who has saved her seeds for over thirty years. The true blue blooms are of Hungarian origin and the other colors were carefully selected over the years in Asheville. 

(Approximately 100 seeds per packet)

Planting Instructions: sow a group of 3 seeds 1/4" deep every 8" in spring as soon as soil can be worked. Full sun. 24"-36" height.
