Thank you so much. I have many things growing in Hamilton Square for which i have no ID as to species and or variety. I love this resource and all of a ATP. Next on my list is about a plant sold as Centaurea gymnocarpa. Ive read that its a hybrid. It doesn't fit in, properly under C. cineraria as describe under plant info on ATP. The trade version has very significant flowers and has a 3-4' height and an 8' foot spread. HamiltonSquare has a one year old plant that is 20" tall and 4' across. The flowers were beautiful mauve and 2" across. Sean O'Hara wrote a scholarly article at gimcw.org on the subject. I'm sure none of this is new news to ATP et al. Any edification would be of interest to me. Sincerely, Leslie Hurlburt

If you show some photos of your plant (leaves, flowers, overall plant), or describe it in a great deal more detail (photos are best for most people)', it can probably be identified - if not here, at least at some other site. It would be best to start a new thread for it.

This is a photo from Annies Annuals where I purchased mine. This photo is also used by Shaun O'Hare from the article I sited earlier. My one year old plant looks exactly like this. If you read the article you'll see that it's not so cut and dried genetically. It's already "probably " identified. Where it fits in the database is the question.
