Cornflower Polka Dot Mix Tall Centaurea Cyanus is an annual native to Europe, but the plant is widely cultivated in North America. Easily grown from flower seeds, this plant is also known as Bachelor's Button, and Cornflower is one of the most popular annuals with attractive, fully double flowers. Cornflower Polka Dot Mix is a colorful mix of white, blue, rose, and lavender flowers. The blooming Cornflower produces an ample supply of nectar to bees and attracts butterflies. 

Cornflower Polka Dot Mix Tall is a long time favorite cottage garden flower that is also widely planted in borders and flower beds. Centaurea Cyanus seeds do not require light to germinate, so the seeds can be covered with soil. Bachelor's Button flower enjoys full sun in a cooler climate, but when it is hot, the partial shade is preferable. Cornflower makes a good cut flower for fresh or dried flower bouquets.
