Centaurea montana 'Amethyst in Snow' is a bicolor cultivar of cornflower, an upright, clump-forming perennial wildflower related to the thistle. 'Amethyst in Snow,' was named for its bicolor appearance, producing flowers in the late spring and early summer that are amethyst purple surrounded by a ring of pink-tinged or cream white tassels.
Centaurea montana typically grows to between one and two feet tall, and spreads very slowly, but in optimal conditions and fertile soil, it can colonize an area rapidly. Care should be taken in choosing a suitable location when planting, as Centaurea montana has been classified as an invasive in some parts of Canada.
