Product Overview

Dusty Miller Bush Purple Flower

(Centaurea gymnocarpa)

Common name: Velvet Centaurea

A very hardy and drought/frost tolerant low perennial succulent like shrub which grows to 50-60cm. It is covered in masses of globular purple flowers during late October to early December and the silver leaves makes it a great background plant for rockeries. Best grown in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Prefers well-drained soil. Ideal for borders, rockeries, pots and containers or grouped together for a low hedge.

For tube stock you will receive:

-1 x younger rooted cutting, roots and any soil attached wrapped in moist netting for protection during travel. Advantages are roots are already starting to develop so usually settles into new ground easy and takes up minimal room with packaging. Cheaper than more advanced established potted plants.

For Potted plants you will receive:

- 1 x Plant in a lightweight flexible pot as described. These pots are used to save freight costs and ease of packaging (round pots don’t fit well in in square boxes). This pot’s function is meant to be a temporary home but will do quite nicely until they are acclimatized and you are ready to plant into more stable potting. No need to re-pot immediately saving plant stress!
