Centaurea cyanus 'Blue Boy'
(Cornflower, Bachelor's Buttons)
300 seeds $2.25
Centaurea cyanus 'Blue Boy' has double blooms in a stunning shade of deep blue. It makes a great cut flower and a lovely addition to the border or the wildflower garden. The true blue color goes with everything - just like the sky. Also known as Centaurea cyanus 'Tall Blue Boy'. I like tall varieties better than dwarf ones because they look more graceful, and they make a bigger impression. Deer resistant.
