This good-looking new variety of Mountain cornflower has bold, deep burgundy, feathery flowers, with typical scaly brown bracts at the base, and attractive lance-shaped leaves. Over time, it will form large clumps, making a wonderful addition to the wild-flower bed, and is ideal for attracting butterflies and bees. It is native to dry meadows and open woodland throughout Europe and in the UK is sometimes found as a hybrid of Centaurea nigra.

Sowing Advice

Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
