Description

Centaurea 'Black Sprite' captures attention as a fascinating clump-forming perennial. Delicate slender stems bear buds enveloped in overlapping bracts. These buds gracefully unfurl to reveal large dark purple flowers with reddish undertones. A cluster of near black flowers at the center, encircled by fine outer florets, creates a captivating visual effect bound to draw admiration. Truly exceptional, the Black Sprite complements any garden space.
