Hardy annual flowering from June through August, grows to 24–36”. Young shoots are edible, fresh flower petals are used as color in salads. Flowers are often used in dried-flower arrangements because they retain their color well. An edible blue dye is obtained from the flowers, used for coloring sugar and confections. Interestingly, the blue pigment is protocyanin, which in roses is red. Flowers are often used in dried-flower arrangements because they retain their colour well. Cornflower has a long history of herbal use. Wild cornflower floral water is produced in Provence, France. It is obtained by steam distillation which can be used as a natural mild astringent and antiseptic to prevent eye infections as well as an alcohol-free natural toner. Dried Cornflower is used in herbal tea blends and is famous in the Lady Grey blend of Twinings. Also known as Cornflower, Bluebottle, Boutonniere Flower, Hurtsickle or Cyani flower. Tags: Color: Blue, Specialty: Deer Resistant, Season: Summer.

Native to Europe. In the past it often grew as a weed in crop fields, hence its name, fields growing grains such as wheat, barley, rye, or oats are sometimes known as corn fields in the UK. In folklore, cornflowers were worn by young men in love; if the flower faded too quickly, it was taken as a sign that the man's love was not returned. It is now endangered in its native habitat by agricultural, particularly over use of herbicides, destroying its habitat; in the United Kingdom it has declined from 264 sites to just 3 sites in the last 50 years. Now naturalized in many other parts of the world, including North America and parts of Australia. Today its considered a beneficial weed.
