Add puffs of color to your native wildflower meadows! The appearance of the plant and blossom is similar to that of the thistle, but this plant lacks prickly characteristics! The flower has a sweet, honey fragrance, and is frequently used in fresh or dried flower arrangements! The common name “Basketflower” comes from the underside of the inflorescence, which has a basket weave pattern on it and on the flower buds. Easy to cultivate and attractive to butterflies!
