Centaurea atropurpurea

Centaurea atropurpurea
An easy and long lived medium sized border perennial but not garish or coarse. Ragged tufts of deep wine red flowers emerge from hard sculpted involucres of dark overlapping scales.
Centaurea atropurpurea
The leaves are jaggedly cut with narrow lobes, and the whole plant is edged with silver rime. Suitable for any reasonably well-drained soil in sun.
