Classic Fantastic

Centaurea cyanus


Cornflowers produce a mass of a beautiful cobalt blue flowers that add colour to vegetable gardens once summer has arrived. In addition they ‘do their bit’ by drawing in diverse beneficial insects like pollinating bees, as well as ladybugs, lacewings and hoverflies whose larvae feed on aphids. Classic Fantastic has a range of blues from light to rich dark blue. Cornflowers can grow to around knee height depending on soil. The flowers dry very well and keep their colour after picking. Germination guaranteed.
