Hi to all...

If anyone can assist me in obtaining information about this certain plant:
Centaurium erythraea... it would be greatly appreciated.

Does this plant have other colours besides pink?
Does it have any fragrance?
Are there any commercial varieties of this plant?
if so... who are the breeders?
where can i buy them??
etc

Tom.

It seems that this is a European herb which has medicinal properties, but I can't find a vendor...your best bet is in Europe...here is a 14 page adobe booklet about the plant and its' origins
