Psephellus simplicicaulis or Centaurea simplicicaulis 'Bellina' (Pink Cornflower) is a well-behaved, small-scale groundcover that has been grown by rock gardeners in the Intermountain West region for decades
• Dozens of pink pom-poms dance atop clean, 8-inch stems from spring to midsummer. Few low-water perennials bloom as long or have such delightful habit and form
Deer-resistant 'Bellina' spreads slowly - use as pathway edgers where its attractive silver-green foliage softens course flagstones
