Cornflower or bachelor’s button is native to Europe. In the past, it was considered a weed in cornfields. It comes in a wide range of colours including white, pink, red-purple, deep burgundy, and even blue, its natural colour.
This flower is highly prized for its brilliant blue flowers. It has soft, frilly blossoms with fringed petals and delicate greyish-green feather foliage. Cornflowers are perfect in a vase along with zinnias, calendula and other brightly coloured cutting garden blossoms.
Cornflowers are often used in weddings as boutonnieres. Today, cornflowers mean wealth, pride and an abundance of good fortune despite its political symbol in the past.
