Cheerful, Self Sowing Bachelor’s Buttons

I planted several different varieties of Bachelor’s Buttons last year. The seed heads shattered and self sowed a naturalized planting for this spring and summer. I love the colorful display and the added benefit of sustaining beneficial insects. Try growing Bachelor’s Buttons and you won’t be disappointed!!
