Agrostemma githago Purple Queen is a delightfully whimsical cottage garden favorite featuring 1" inch, open-faced, fluted 5 petal flowers that are delicately speckled with a fine black starburst veining that explodes from the center of the flower toward the outward petal edge. Shimmering brilliant purple and white ombre flower blooms are slightly silky in appearance and the foliage is a unique willowy gray-green. A favorite of pollinator friends, these fancy garden flowers will attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees in abundance. Best known for their dancing movement as they sway and swish in the breeze, Agrostemma is a must grow for those who appreciate a symphony of texture and airy garden feel. This cold hardy annual will grow 24" to 30" inches and makes an excellent cut flower. Packet: 100 seeds. All parts of this plant are poisonous, including the seeds. Exercise extreme caution around children and pets. The purchaser assumes all liability relating to the use of this product.
