Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Centaurea montana 'Amethyst in Snow' is the first bicolour of its species! This showy variety of Perennial Cornflower boasts mauve-purple flower heads, surrounded by a ring of dazzling white petals. The grey green foliage has a low spreading habit that forms a wide mound. This eye-catching variety is perfect for adding some ‘wow’ factor to the front of herbaceous borders. Ideal for cottage gardens and wildlife areas where it will attract pollinating insects. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Centaurea in borders in full sun. Perennial Cornflowers are drought tolerant once established and will happily tolerate almost any soil, except those that are excessively waterlogged.
Water Centaurea plants regularly until fully established. In autumn, cut back old stems to just above ground level to make way for new growth in the spring.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
