This attractive wildflower is native to the mountain meadows and woodlands of continental Europe, where it is known as a ‘knapweed ’. It produces fields full of it ’s unusual but attractive purple and white flowers. The green-grey, lance-shaped foliage creates a bed of green under the long flowering spike. At the top of the spike sits the unique blue flower, which sees a ring of long, feathered petals emerge from a rounded, textured core. The effect is a bed of textured and vibrant starbursts that sit on top of a sea of deep green attractive to wildlife and pollinators – the ideal plant for the front or middle of a border, a container or raised bed.

Where to plant a Centaurea plant
Your Centaurea will thrive best in well-draining soil that receives full sun throughout the day. This hardy perennial will thrive in most soils but prefers looser ones over clay or heavy ones.

How to look after Centaurea plants?
As a tall perennial, you should stake the plant early to help it survive strong winds. You should water regularly to keep the soil moist but not wet. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer a few times a month from early spring until it stops blooming. Deadheading regularly promotes new growth and prolongs flowering.
This CENTAUREA montana comes in a 2 litre pot
