A Perennial Bachelor's Button!

Two-tone blooms begin early on super-easy plants!

Much looser and more airy than traditional Bachelor's Buttons, Mountain Bluet's blooms are the first to appear in late spring or early summer, and are hardy over a wide range of conditions. 3 inches across, they are utterly distinctive, with very large centers of maroon-purple so deep it looks nearly black, surrounded by long, thin, sparsely-set petals of rich blue. Slightly twisted so that no two blooms look just alike, the outer petals give these flowers a windswept look that is attention-getting.

Easy to grow in well-drained, dry soil and full sun, these 18-inch plants bloom reliably in late spring and early summer. Packet is 25 seeds.

Grows like a weed! Technically IS a weed!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Started these indoors, planted them out into a container. They bloomed and went to seed, choking out their pot co-habitant. I'll have to wait till spring to see if it's actually hardy to Zone 3. Ecpext it'll pop up just fine.
