Perennial bachelor's button (Centaurea montana) brings clumps of cool color to late-spring and summer gardens. Artichokelike buds crowning 2-foot stems of downy green foliage unfurl into fringed blue flowers with spidery violet centers. They make striking floral arrangements. Also known as mountain bluet, this drought-tolerant central European native has adapted to life in Sunset Climate Zones 8 through 24. It struggles in hot, humid conditions and succumbs to wet winter soils. Perennial bachelor’s button needs full sun and neutral-to-alkaline soil. Enjoy the masses of butterflies hovering around its spreading clumps of blue. Propagate by root division every two years.
