Cornflower White Tall Centaurea Cyanus is an annual flowering plant native to Europe. White Cornflower seeds germinate quickly, and also called Bachelor's Button this fast growing Cornflower variety produces masses of fully double, white flowers that appear all season long attracting bees and butterflies.
Cornflower White Tall is a popular choice for cottage gardens, meadow gardens and flower beds. Centaurea Cyanus can be started indoors or outdoors and Bachelor's Button prefers cool weather and full sun tolerating partial shade, drought, and poor soil conditions. White Bachelor's Button is an excellent fresh cut flower, and since it retains its bright color when dried, this selection is also a superb flower for dried floral arrangements. Cornflower self-sows itself and comes back from year to year.
