Customer Reviews

the most prolific, vibrant blue

I planted these bachelor buttons a year ago from seeds using PV organic potting soil and let them grow all summer in the greenhouse. I transplanted them to the ground last fall. This spring around the first of May they started to bud up. By the first of June the plant was full off beautiful vibrant blue blossoms and has not stopped flowering. It is a magnificient addition to my wildflower garden. I only water once a week. Bees seem to love them as well
