Corn flower

Corn flower

Corn flower is a common name for Centaurea cyanus, a flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to Europe and Asia. It is also known as bachelor’s button or bluebonnet. It has blue, pink, white, or red flowers with four petals and a dark center, resembling daisies. Corn flower is an annual plant that grows best in full sun, well-drained soil, and moderate moisture. It blooms from late spring to early summer and attracts bees and butterflies. Corn flower was once a common weed in cornfields and other grain crops, hence its name. Corn flower is a popular ornamental plant for cottage gardens, wildflower meadows, and cut flowers.
