Centaurea macrocephala - Armenian Basket Flower.
The Fruitful Potager
Large golden yellow thistle like flowers in late summer/autumn followed by golden seed heads make this a very striking plant. Flowers last well, are good for picking and are attractive to bees and butterflies. This plant is tough, hardy and copes well with dry once established. Something different. Will self-seed so deadhead if this is going to bother you. Sunny location. 1m high. 2ltr pot
