Bachelor’s button, also known as “cornflower”, is drought tolerant and needs little pampering. Flowers are great for cutting or drying and the edible petals are beautiful sprinkled on a salad. Bachelor’s button will “naturalize”; it self-sows for another crop of flowers the following season, and birds love the seed heads! Attracts pollinators and beneficial insects.

    The seed packets arrived as expected. They arrived the same time as a cold snap, so I haven’t had a chance to plant them yet.

    I was initially skeptical of such a good deal but I forgot about these leaves in my mailbox for TWO DAYS and they were still in amazing shape! the smallest leaf I received was a little dehydrated and he might not make it but I totally assume responsibility for its likely demise. I received 4 different and really beautifully patterned leaf cuttings.
