Centaurea hypoleuca-Cornflower

Propagating Centaurea hypoleuca or Cornflower is done in the fall after the plant finishing blooming by digging up and separating into how many viable transplants you believe will take root and spread by stolons so be on the look out for plants that crop up at a distance Cornflower is a member of the Aster family so it blooms from early summer to early fall in colors that are pink to mauve/lilac, needs full sun and depending on the location may need staking as they reach a height of 20"-24". The plant is deciduous, deer resistant, do not like wet feet, and its blooms tend to be fragrant and are excellent for cutting.
