Botanical Interests Packet

(Heirloom) Vivid color; black or dark maroon mixes nicely with ‘Blue Boy' for an exciting combination. Bachelor's button (cornflower) has other desirable traits including drought tolerance and flowers that can be used as dried or cut flowers, and the edible petals make a stunning garnish. Bachelor's button will "naturalize"; it self-sows the next year for another crop of flowers.
