Bellina Pink Cornflower

Psephellus simplicicaulis

A well-behaved, trim and invaluable small-scale groundcover that produces no end of bright pink pincushions from spring through summer. Bellina spreads slowly-- eventually to a yard or more across-- with frilly matte green leaves that are silvery beneath. Few xeric perennials bloom as long or have such delightful habit and form.
