Growing Centaurea (Centaurea)

Latin Name Pronunciation: sen-taw-ree'uh  

Grow Centaurea in full sun or partial shade and moisture-retentive but well-drained soil. Cut flower stems to the ground after first wave of blossoms to encourage rebloom (which isn't dependable in the South) and to curb tendency to self-sow.
