Bachelor Button is a drought tolerant annual native to Europe. The flower is the original deep blue hue that songs have been written about. The foliage is silvery green/blue due to a proliferation of small white hairs on the leaves and stems. Bachelor Button makes an excellent cut flower that keeps its color when dried.
Bachelor Button likes full sun and is hardy in various soil types. Seeds will germinate in 7-25 days within the optimum soil temperature range of 60-70 degrees. Blooms March-May.
I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
