Cerinthe is an unusual purple-blue bell-shaped flower that contrasts nicely against dark leaves on long, straight stems.  Happy to be grown in a border or containers. Cerinthe major Purpurescens is easy to care for, withstanding both heat and cold, and providing months of vibrant colour in any garden. It's a great way to bring a distinct look to your outdoor space.

Lovely addition to a cut flower garden adding interest, bringing in the bees and self-seeding freely!  Its purple flowers are an eye-catching addition to any garden, while its nectar-rich blooms attract pollinators and beneficial insects. It is also an easy plant to establish and can self-seed freely.
