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!!

Vegetables are for the body. Flowers are for the soul!!
