Crepis Barbata

Crepis Barbata
Crepis Barbata, Bearded Crepis, or Purple Eyed Succory Hawkweed is one of the most common annuals cultivated in our gardens. The centre of the flower is usually black or deep purple colour. It begins flowering in July, and continues to blossom till the frost sets in.

Grows spontaneously in the south of France, about Montpelier; also, in Spain, Italy, Sicily, and elsewhere in the south of Europe.

No other care is necessary in the cultivation of this species than sowing the seeds in the spring, in little patches, on the borders where they are to remain, thinning them if they prove too numerous.
