I grew this from seeds, a friend gave it to me but she also don't know the name of this flower.
Those are beautiful! Could they be Globe Amaranth or Gomphrena?
Gomphrena, I agree Netty.
Just a beauty.Is that what we call Bachlor Buttons?
You're right Glenda they are what you call Bachelors buttons. :-D
I have some coming up but mine will never look like those.It is just the right climate where she is to grow anything.
8) I agree with Gomphrena aka "Globe Amaranth".
I know you guys must think I'm a total plant-nerd (and I guess I am )
for always using the Latin names,
but that's how confusing "common" names can be,
what I've always known as "Bachelor Buttons" is Centaurea cyanus,
a whole 'nother critter.
These are Bachelor's buttons, a little different fron Gomphrena.
GF your BB's look very similar to our cornflowers but in a much wider range of colours. :-D
another name for these ARE cornflowers
Wow! Thank's everyone. I have send seeds of this to some members of gerdenstew, hope they could see it here so they would know the name cause i wrote "violet pompoms" in the bag.
Separate names with a comma.
