Quantity in Basket: None

Family: Asteraceae

This is a sprawling perennial shrub with filigreed grayish-white leaves and pinkish-purple small thistle-like flowers in spring through mid-summer. Grows 3 to 4 feet in height and 6 to 8 feet in width. Can be pruned hard after flowering and will quickly regrow. Give full sun and water sparingly. It is drought resistant and will tolerate a wide range of soils. Hardy to 15 to 20F. Native to Italy. USDA zones 8-10. This is sometimes sold as Centaurea gymnocarpa but that is botanically incorrect, as C. gymnocarpa refers to a rare endangered plant from a small Italian island off of Tuscany.
