CENTAUREA montana 'Amethyst in Snow' PP18284
Amethyst in Snow Cornflower, Mountain Bluet, Perennial Cornflower
What a pretty mountain bluet. The patented ‘Amethyst in Snow’ originates from the mountainous areas of Central Europe. This mounding perennial is distinguished by its large feathery white and purple flowers, high vigor and overall good garden performance.
The foliage is gray-green, lance-shaped and forms a low mound. In late spring to early summer strong stems topped with spidery white flowers with purple centers appear. The blooms are attractive to butterflies and set lots of seed once spent. In fact, mountain bluets are known to self-sow with efficiency, so it’s wise to remove the flower heads before they mature.
Grow this easy perennial in full to partial sun and offer it well drained average to poor soil. Once established, the plants can withstand moderate drought. The plant’s clumps can become substantial and should be divided every three years or so. The delicate blooms of ‘Amethyst in Snow’ will add sparkle to sunny alpine, rock or cottage gardens.
