Centaurea cyanus 'Blue Boy'

Cornflower '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.

This selection is 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.

For a full range of colors, see Centaurea cyanus 'Polka Dot Mix'. Also known as Bachelor's Buttons. Deer resistant.
