Product Overview

Centaurea cyanus

A profusion of sky blue flowers in your water-wise garden will bring weeks of delight! A honeybee favorite. Superb cut or dried flowers.

With dazzling, sky-blue flowers, 'Blue Boy' is wonderful in mass, and because it is drought tolerant, it's practically care-free. Flowers can be used dried or fresh cut, while the edible petals make a colorful garnish. Also known as cornflower, bachelor's button will "naturalize", or self-sow, for another crop of blue flowers next year.
