(Centaurea moschata) Hardy annual. To 2 feet. Fragrant, thistle-like blooms look like large, silky powder puffs! The flowers run from deep, dusky rose purple through pink to white, and so fragrant! Makes a lovely addition to the border, and the 2-inch flowers are wonderful for cutting. Bees and butterflies adore them, as did the cottage gardeners of a bygone era. Often listed by seedsmen as Amberoa moschata.
