Bachelor Buttons are known for being extremely easy to grow and putting on a colorful, textured show in the summer garden. They also attract wildlife and American goldfinches put on quite a show as they dive into fields of this flower when it is going to seed. This is the famous flower of many romantic legends, thus the name “Bachelor’s Button”. Young single girls wore the bloom as a signal of availability in Old England. It also always figures prominently in the Victorian "Language of Flowers"--of which there are several versions.

        Comments about American Meadows Bachelor's Button Amethyst Dreams:

        Love the perennial Batchelor Buttons. One of the few perennials that flowers then reflowers. When it's done flowering the first time, cut down to a few inches and an entire new "crop" will grow and provide more flowers. Almost foolproof.

        Mine is certainly taller than 20"! Closer to 30+" so it does require staking.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
