Enjoy this beautiful blue eye-catcher in your garden.
Wild bees and other pollinators are in decline. This plant is recommended specifically by the RHS as part of the RHS plants for pollinators scheme. This scheme helps gardeners to easily identify plants that encourage bees and pollinators back into the garden.
The Cornflower loves a warm sunny spot and flowers richly in the summer. The plant is most attractive in larger groups forming a beautiful blue ball of flowers.
It is a self seeding plant and young plants are easy to transplant.
The Cornflower is a lovely addition to your garden and a valuable nectar source for insects.
