Carthamus dianius

Carthamus dianius
A lovely big Centaurea type of thing. White flower heads with violet stigma over jagged lobed deep green foliage.
Carthamus dianius
Unlike the more familiar annual safflower (C.tinctorius) this is a robust perennial and despite being Spanish is a hardy evergreen. Splendid herbaceous border plant - ought to be much better known.
1L pots ~ £7
