Centaurea, Black Sprite PPAF is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Beauty I bought 2 of these and planted them 4/2015 and they did fabulous! Bloomed well into fall. They were quite the conversation piece due to the color. Now May 2016 they are 4 times the size they were last year and I am so looking forward to when they bloom. If the size of the leaves are any indication, the blooms will be terrific and a feast for sore eyes at our garden lunches! :)
