Centaurea cyanoides, Blue Carpet, Syrian cornflower-thistle

The first seeds, which were planted in October, to produce flowers this year.

I had acquired the seeds from Chantal who runs
 THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY Seed Exchange and they originated in Spain in 2018

The first flower opened on the first of March followed by more on 12th March

Now I wish I had planted them in a bigger container   

This annual is mentioned in

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care
