This was from Aldi last year. They're a bit thuggish but who cares with flowers like this 💜 @anges

They’re lovely and they self-seed freely so you’re likely to get extra flowers in the next years! The birds go crazy for their seeds!

I couldn't kill mine if I tried haha it is the forever giving plant, in my area at least. I trim it probably three times in the growing season 🙈

I'm hoping that the plants that are around it will give it some support Emma, that's the plan anyway 🙄😂 @OldMansBeard

Cataloguing. A cheeky little buy from Aldi’s yesterday, they’ve got some lovely perennials in at the moment at just 99p each 💜 #centaurea-montana

It's my favourite plant this year. I don't know if I have the same variety but mine smells like ripe plums. The fragrance is intoxicating 💜💜💜

I’ve had some really good plants from them and they are so cheap but you need to get them when they first come in (usually Thursday) as like all supermarkets they don’t look after them! 👍 @italydiva
