Oh Donna, that's pretty,
That's a good size patch you have too!!!

I gotta go move mine...........
They're not happy at all where they are..
Tooooooo dry!!!
Mine are so short this year it's unbelievable.

I haven't been back that far in a week or so,
I should take a hike back and take a peak....

I'll have to PM Lynne and show her too!!!

What an interesting and different flower!
I've never seen the yellow type for sale around here - just the blue centaurea montana. Mine are pretty much finished blooming - they go way too quickly here for me - just love the colors.

Thanks for sharing this picture - I'll have to look more carefully for one of these now!

Weezie-
I love them. That is just 1 plant. They get rather large. It is in my driest bed and full sun all day. The yellow glows they are so bright.

Lynne-
I'll save you some seed if you like. They seem to grow easily from seed. Would you save me some blue? wink Please. angell

Donna - I would LOVE Duh , but will definitely give that a try for you this year. They must grow pretty easily from seeds, as I do find baby plants popping up a distance from the mother plant every now and then. thumbup
