Bachelor Buttons Blue Boy Cornflowers Centaurea cyanus

  • $ 2.50


Bachelor Buttons or Cornflowers are an old fashioned favorite and a staple of Cottage Gardens.  Lovely blue flowers are often used in wildflower seed mixes. This is an annual flower for zones 3-10. Bachelor Buttons make great cut flowers for informal garden style arrangements. This listing is for 100 seeds fresh from this year's crop. 

Bachelor Buttons grow best in full sun. Plants can reach 24-36 inches when in bloom. The silvery foliage adds to the contrast. I like to let this plant reseed in my main rose garden. It is a great plant for weaving and will fill the gaps in between other shrubs and perennials.

All seeds come packaged in a kraft paper envelope with complete growing instructions. Seeds are harvested and cleaned by hand so small natural bits of chaff may be present.
