This plant is also known as the Cornflower. It is an old-fashioned wildflower that can be used in cut arrangements. Although it is an annual, it often reseeds itself.


All of our seeds have been hand processed, packaged and tested for germination rates. We add padding to our package seeds for added protection. The seed will arrive in plastic bags that can be resealed for your convenience.


We cannot guarantee the rate of germination will match what we have tested at due to individual growing environments.  If you need additional information about growing our seeds please email us. All seeds are labeled with growing information.
