Item details


Bloom: Spring- Late Summer

These lavish purple-black beauties have been conjured up in my auntie's garden without chemicals or pesticides.

Black to dark maroon blossoms exhibit vivid and everlasting colors that lasts for weeks in your garden years when dry. As if my magic, this plant can withstand a variety of conditions including drought, poor soil, and high wind. Edible petals make stunning garnishes and plants will self-sow at the end of the season(you may also harvest seeds and re-sow).
This glorious annual grows on productive and stable plants that reach up to 30 inches if left untrimmed. Flowers bloom on compact bushes that need no special soils, special fertilizers, or extra maintenance. After being sown in the yard, cornflowers will grow on their own without support or clipping. You may choose to remove spent or faded flowers to extend their flowering period well into the early fall.

Cornflowers are also know as 'Bachelor's Buttons' and retain both their shape and color after they are dried. This special feature makes them the perfect choice for everlasting bouquets, wreaths, and arrangements. Flowers will look as if they were picked yesterday despite being dried and kept for years. My mother loves to weave our cornflowers into wreaths and share them with friends on July 4th and Veteran's day.
Whether you'd like to grow them for your garden or dry them for yourself or another special person, cornflowers are the perfect low maintenance choice for gardeners and crafters alike.

In order to save seeds, you can wait until seed pods form and dry. Gently harvest the seed pods and open them over a plastic bag or a newspaper. Collect the new seeds to plant again or gift to someone special!

Each hand designed and child decorated packet contains at least 15 organic homegrown seeds! Each seed packet features it's own special image drawn by our residential little artists! We do not use pesticides or chemicals in our garden!

Shipping costs cover the base shipping and the handling- this includes production of seed packets, seed harvesting, and preservation. We also isolate plants to ensure strain purity and harvest, dry, and clean each seed pod by hand! All the best, because we care!

Our local little artists are hard at work imagining and designing great images for our packets and our grown-ups here cut, pack, harvest, and do just about everything by hand, please take consideration of our small efforts to ensure love in every sprout!
