Beautiful Lavender "Dandelion"
Planted 2 last fall and they stayed pretty mounds of green all (very mild and snowless) winter. Now we have dozens, maybe even hundreds of flowers that are really pretty and last 1 - 1.5 weeks as cut flowers. Even after the petals fall off the seed head is an interesting globe with soft red "hairs," that remind me of a cactus. So far I haven???t removed a single spent bloom because they remain visually appealing and they contrast nicely with the blooms. The plants grow vaguely like dandelions with a 3-4 inch high mound of foliage and 12-18 inch stems with flowers at the end. At first each stem only had one flower but as the season has continued the stems have started branching off while new stems continue to grow. I planted them at work and I think every person here has asked me what they are; they look that good. Now (June about 8 months after planting) the foliage is about 10-12 inches in diameter and the stems grow every direction, like really long pins in a pincushion. 4 stars because of the color
