Centaurea cyanus

Centaurea cyanus, commonly known as cornflower, bachelor’s button, bluebottle, boutonniere flower, hurtsickle or cyani flower, is an annual flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to Europe.

Years ago I started with a package of cornflowers seed…Now not only my garden but all the gardens in the neighborhood have this hardy perennial that won’t take “no” for an answer and spreading around gracefully…They bloom until late autumn. Bees love them as it can be seen in my post of #wordlesswednesday Pollinating…

I love them…
