Appearance and Use:

Flowers are popular for cutting use, both fresh and dried, and plants make a nice addition to border designs. Plant habit is upright to 2 feet tall and 1 foot wide. Flowers appear over a long time-period from early to late summer. The flower heads are composted of clusters of tiny (half-inch) papery-textured, funnel-shaped individual flowers that come in colors of white, blue, yellow or red. The dark green leaves grow in basil rosettes and are oblong to 6 inches long with deeply lobed, wavy margins. Stems are bright green
