Product description

Cornflower "Dwarf Blue" Seeds - Bachelor Button Seeds Cornflower – or Bachelor Button – is one of the most popular wildflower seed varieties in the United States.

Not only is cornflower attractive and affordable, but it is also a vigorous species with a wide-ranging adaptability that typically renders it easily grown from seed.

“Dwarf Blue” is our top selling Cornflower variety, and an excellent addition to any wildflower garden.

Cornflowers are native to Europe, where they got their common name because they often grew in corn fields. They’ve made themselves at home in North American and can be found naturalizing throughout most of the continent. Because of their near true blue color and profuse bloom, they are popular garden flowers.

Botanical Name Centaurea cyanus Direct sow in late fall or early spring, planting the seeds thinly and 1/4” deep. In the spring, keep the soil moist after sowing; germination should occur within 7-10 days.

To start indoors, plant three or four seeds 1/4” below the surface in individual peat pots. Keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 65-70 degrees F until germination; thin to the strongest seedlings. Transplant the seedlings before they reach a height of 5”, placing them 9-12” apart.

This plant prefers rather sandy soil.

Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Mature plants tolerate drought, but prefer adequate moisture and may need occasional watering. Prune off developing tips to force the plant to produce more branches and fuller growth, as well as more flowers.

Deadhead spent blossom for the most abundant flowers, keeping in mind that the latest blossoms will need be left in order to produce seed; though an annual, it will reseed easily to produce volunteer plants.
