  1. We don't have this one but I do grow the tropical version,the Brazilian Bachelor Button (Centratherum intermedium). More purple tones but a butterfly magnet if ever there was one.

  2. Bachelor Buttons are so nice plants. It is rare to have a true blue flowering plant in the garden, but these guys sure deliver. Very lovely photography, too, Tatyana! Thanks for another great post!

  4. I love blue bachelor buttons. The red is also quite nice.... more like a deep pink.

  5. A very stunning blue! Not a flower I see planted (or think to plant) very often anymore. A shame, as the blooms really are lovely.

  11. Oh-so-pretty! My bb's got choked out this year by the wildly sociable crops of rose campion and shasta daisies. Not next year though.
