I've got Centaurea montana 'Alba', but this is slightly cream, isn't it!

I shall be asking you where you got your plants, Louise! (please!)

I use several nurseries that send plants out in the mail, these came from Special Perennials who are in Cheshire.

Is it perennial then? Was gifted with a brown/ maroon Bachelor Button "Black Magic" with silverish foliage that's gone to town, and figure it will reseed. Am looking, however, for one I saw with filigree silver foliage in a good 3 ft mound with purple thistly flowers (like the perennial Mtn BB). Told it might be a dealbata?

Definately perennial Orgratis, i love these !
Yes, Dealbata is purple but then so are several others.
Have a look at because they have such a lot of them.

So they do. Merci. Have always wanted to try Centaurea macrocephelia...
