Sweet Smelling Centaurea Montana
Have you ever taken a sniff of Centaurea Montana? The blooms have a wonderful sweet fragrance, which for me bring back fond childhood memories of summers in rustic Newfoundland, where they grew wild in the meadows and along the streams.
Centaurea Montana is a perennial cornflower with single flower heads, as opposed to the annual cornflower which has many flower heads. It readily escapes from gardens, and grows freely in open meadows and woodlands.
If you haven't yet taken a sniff of this wonderful bloom, I encourage you to give it a try. You won't regret it. Look closely at the bloom first however, as bees love them too:)!
