will this grow in central Fl.? Zone 9

Asked by: DM
Mountain bluet, aka Centaurea Montana grows in zones 3-8 according to a google search, so no, it probably wouldn't do well in zone 9.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from is beautiful I ordered this, and had it sent to a frend. She absolutely loves it!!! This is a great alternative to just sending flowers to someone. This will be around for awhile, not a temporary arrangement. Will definitely do this again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Going to try again! When I received this plant, it looked healthy enough. I planted it and nurtured it as I do my other plants and it bloomed beautifully. Then, it started to brown and died. Wish I'd known about HD's return policy, but I tossed the dead plant. I'm not giving up, though, because it did look beautiful while it lasted. Ordering another one today. Here's praying that this one lives!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product was delivered dead! I ordered 3 one gal. containers of Mountain Bluet plants. When I got them two of the plants was all most dead. all of the leaves where wilted. I planted all in a row. two are dead and 1 is doing good. So I got one out of three to take. That is reason it gets only one star

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Presentation Was concerned about the frailty of this beauty but arrived healthy and the first bud has bloomed into an impressive flower that the picture represented.
