Description

Details

Centaurea Imperialis Rose is also known as Imperial Series or more commonly, Sweet Sultan. These beautiful Centaureas are delightfully rich in texture and add interest to any garden. Blooms themselves are 2" to 3" inches across and are best described as fringed, fluffy flowers. Almost thistle-looking, they protrude from a basket weave stem bottom that is also visually captivating. And to add to their depth of character, these blooms fill the air with a sweet honey scent all their own. Strong, straight stems make this variety a cut flower growers’ favorite!

Known to be grown in the Americas since the late 1700's when scented flowers were highly desirable, this is truly an old fashioned garden charmer. Considered a hardy annual, plants grow to 30" inches and like full sun. Packet: 100 seeds.
