Definitely the best of this species, Colchester White lives up to its name with bright white finely divided leaves. Purple flowers are held loosely above the foliage to great effect. Growing wider than it does high it makes a beautiful feature in the garden. One plant looks beautiful, massed it is spectacular.

Centaurea cineraria "Colchester White"

By: on 25 November 2020
A new twist on an old favourite; the "white" applies to the finely feathered foliage that appears to be heavily dusted in flour. The long-lasting blooms are pinkish-purple, held high above the foliage. Definitely a plant for full sun, as ours in half shade are already getting a bit leggy. Grow several of these together and the effect is stunning !
