It has pinnate, lance-shaped, and lobed leaves, but the plant forms a rosette of larger oval leaves. The flowers are produced in the summer on tall stems, sometimes 28in or 70cm in height. The small flowers show on paper-like clusters that come in violet, pink, yellow, or white. The flowers dry out on the plant and continue to add a lot of color to the landscape and they are also used in flower arrangements both fresh and dried.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
